    This really depend on your location in the US, cost will vary from the low $30's per sqaure foot to excess of $400.

    Check with mutiple contractors in the area that you decide to build.

    City permit fee's will also vary. Check with the local building department.

    In Las Vegas it is about $285/sf if you can find a builder thats not booked up for the next three years. In northern Indiana it is about $63/sf

    If you decide to build, consider 'modular homes' (not to be confused with manufactured (mobile) homes.

    They are cheaper, stronger and take a lot less time to build.

    Go to the website http://www.primeamericanproperties for a list of differences between conventionally built homes, modular homes and manufactured homes.
