No idea what the footings cost alone but the tender was dead on (as it should be as they take soil tests etc )
I didn't upgrade much but few i remember are:
Door handles to lever type ~$300 for the whole house
Front door to door with glass ~$200
Window locks ~$100
Overhead cupboards ~$2000
Most things were reasonable.

Interesting thing with the pantry - i don't think i paid for cupboards - was just expecting shelving.
Nice bonus but
Also looks like my front porch is going to be tiled - i don't think i paid for it but will take it
According to my plans i was not even meant to get a slab under the porch.

Not much left really, bit of painting, few places the eves are still missing and roller door?
