The first question anyone contemplating building a new home wants to know the answer to is, how much will it cost?
From what I can gather, the cost is:
Project Home $800/m2 to 1200/m2
Custom Design (builder centred) $1400/m2 to 2000/m2
Custom Design (architect centred) $2400/m2 to $3600/m2
I'd be interested if anyone could refine these figures. Any feedback welcome.
The difference in the final product between the Project Home to Custom Design (builder centred) is clear. The question I have is, what do you get extra in the final product with a Custom Design (architect centred) house?
See attachment for more details.

Our house had a list price of $133,000 - it will end up at least $233,000 and this is still not with all the bells and whistles!

There's another thread which somewhat related to this? I've asked how much it costs to build a house? The reason I want to know this so that I will have knowledge if I'm getting the best price or not based on the land size and the house size as well.

This is a pretty old thread - Casa first posted it in 2007.
He is pretty close to starting his custom design build soon I think? Is that so Casa?
Some things are worth waiting for.
