This is such BS. The only reason the question can't be answered accurately is because there is no STANDARD to base the answer on. If we all had a STANDARD Design Print with specs like 1800 square foot ranch, 2 x 6 inch walls, Solid wood oak floors, six panel pine interior doors, Andersen model XXX windows and patio slider, XYZ kitchen cabinets model 123, Quartz counter tops from ABC company, XYZ premium composite siding, ABC architectural roof shingles, etc…. you get the point where I am going here? The home building industry needs to get off their backside and come up with a set of standardized plans for a RANCH, CAPE COD, COLONIAL etc… then, we consumers could get an idea of cost based upon that. If you upgrade or downgrade from the standard, then, in theory you would expect the price to decrease or increase. And on another note Cape Cod based contractors are notorious for not answering phone calls. Some of these guys have been quoted as saying "If I can't get a job on a High End home (aka very high cost McMansion) then, I'd rather sit at home on my couch". I have called many contractors over the years and I'm amazed at how many never return phone calls. I'll get off my soapbox now.
