When picking a contractor for building your new home or cottage look for:
Builders advise clients building a new home or building a new cottage to expect ballpark cost to be approximately $200/sq ft for viceroy homes style - to get hardwood floors and pine ceilings, and more for higher end finishes. Other expenses that need to be considered include; needing to blast for the foundation, how deep the well needs to be, how far the hydro has to travel, driveway cost, heating system choice and landscaping to complete your project – just to name a few.
We asked Aggie Tose, Executive Officer of the Haliburton County Home Builders Association, to recommend a good resource for people who are thinking of buildling a new cottage or home. This PDF, Projects Done Right: Hiring a Professional Contractor, is an excellent starting point.
