New construction costs of a second floor

Asked by pbritton52, Ellenton, FL Mon May 27, 2013

I have always heard that it is less expensive to build the second floor of a home due to the costs of the foundation and roofing already being included in the first floor. If we build a rectangular home with a builder that charges $125/sq ft for a one story home, about how much less should the cost per sq ft be for the second floor?

Tough question, only answered by a builder. Basically, I don't believe you will save much money. Reason, used two story houses are not cheaper than used one story houses.
