Are Appliances Included in Total Cost to Build a House?

Carl, I was wondering if the cost to build a house usually includes appliances.

Thank you, Mary

Hi Mary,

Yes, usually 1% to 2.0% of the total cost to build is allocated for appliances.

You can spend more, or you can spend less, but this is the national Average.

Check out the appliance categories on the the charts below.

And, be sure and read my pages on Cost Estimating and Cost Estimating Explained.

Thanks for writing. Your question is a good one!.
