Every homeowner wants to know the bottom line for their project, as they should. But there are many factors that go into determining this number, so our initial answer is, “It depends.” Some of the factors that must be considered are the quality of construction materials, custom features, and luxury design features.
During the Schematic Phase and Design Development Phase of the project, we will define the general design and engineering requirements that then allows us to determine a more precise construction estimate.
We typically recommend that homeowners use this matrix as a rough estimate when considering their construction budget:
$400 per sq. ft. for a basic construction quality
$500 per sq ft. for a semi-custom design
$600+ per sq ft. for a luxury custom design
These estimates are based on 2020 California construction trends in the Los Angeles County area. It is subject to change based on market condition and world events. Please consult a certified construction cost valuator for current construction estimate.
