How Much Does it Cost to Build a House in Alabama

Summary: How much does it cost to build a house in Alabama.

Carl, what will a 2,400 Ranch house with 500 sq ft of non living area cost to build per sq. ft. in Birmingham AL.?

I believe I will have to have the house built on a slab foundation due to high water tables in the area.

Thanks, Barry

Hi Barry,

Here’s a 2400 sq ft country home plan from Associated Designs with almost 400 sq ft of non living (bonus room) in the attic area over the garage.

The Clearheart 10-410

Total 2016 approximate estimated cost including the General Contractor’s markup of $42,092 = $348,461 = $156 per sq ft.

For an owner builder, subtract the General Contractor’s markup and it drops to $137 per sq ft.

Keep in mind that these estimates are only a...continued.

And read Cost Estimating for more information.
Good luck, Carl Heldmann
