This is a popular question on Trulia; "What is the construction cost per-square-foot in.... Seattle, Glencoe, Illinois, or Garland, Texas?" The best advice is to seek a local contractor. The cost per-square-foot will vary based on the cost of permits, materials, labor, and the quality of the finishes and fixtures you select. It's impossible to give you a price without knowing if the project is a one-story home, a 2-story, the number of bathrooms, brick, wood, or stucco, and more? Really, there are just too many variables to consider to offer you a cost estimate that would be reliable.
