A: When we hold open houses we get this question 9 out of 10 people who walk in. S. Tanaka Construction has never bid or figured out a project based off square footage. It’s not an accurate method of obtaining a quote. You can however use square footage as a guideline. For example: John wants a 2,500 square foot house built on a level lot. He want’s a kitchen, living room, 5 bedrooms and 3 baths. Our bid comes out to $350,000.00 which equals $140.00 a square foot. Now John want to add a wet bar and another full bath, keeping his 2,500 square foot home. This will add another $40,000.00 to the original bid of $350,000.00. So now the square footage of the home is $156.00. John says I need split air conditioner in 6 rooms. Okay now the air conditioners will cost $20,000.00. Now the bid is at $410,000.00 and the square footage is at $164.00 without adding and square feet to the original 2,500 square feet. This also applies to materials from the flooring, cabinets, counter tops, shower enclosures etc etc etc. So to give you an idea of what your project may cost, make an appointment we will give you a bid based off what your needs and want’s are to your project. It’s a free estimate!
