The cost of conventional wood frame residential construction in Southern New England on average is about $250 per square foot. If someone else tells you differently, beware of their motives. Something was left out of contract and you will pay. Many will promise you the moon and the stars to get your job, I can only promise you to be direct and protect your interest.

Construction takes a great deal of time.

What is your well defined budget?

What is your realistic timeline?

What is your wish list? 

If you can answer these crucial questions, call me.

Otherwise, you are not ready. Your money, your home.


"The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot, it can’t be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is wise to add something for the risk you take and if you do that you might as well pay for something better”

John Ruskin  “The Price Perspective” 1850's
