"Hi there Mr. Heldmann, I was wondering how much it cost to take down an old house and build a new house.
Hi Lance, the following is from Chapter 9 in my book.
If you determine that the effort, cost, and "value added" in renovating a house just doesn't make sense or you just want a new house on a particular site and there is a house in the way, then tearing down the existing house and building a new one may be the option for you.
For more on "Tear Downs" read Chapter 9 and visit my House Tear Down - The Extreme Makeover - Video. There is also a "tear down" video.
