this is a tough question. As a rule of thumb, your average cost will be no less than $100/sq.ft.
Now, depending on the material you use and if you take the general contractor responsibilities, you might achieve that $100/sq.ft.
Obviously, the more upgrades you put into the house the higher the $ amount is going to be.
Can you be any more specific about your question? Are you thinking about construction in a new neighborhood, addition to your home, or building on a vacant lot you own.
NOTE: I am assuming you are talking about new construction ? or pre - existing homes
