The costs used in this video were derived from multiple sources including but not limited to: 2022 National Construction Estimator by Craftsman Books, the builder’s own experience, and the latest NAHB (i.e. National Association of Home Builders) Economics and Housing Policy Group, Cost of Constructing a Home. Construction costs can vary greatly from one location to the next due to material and labor shortages and local market conditions. Individual customer finish and design choices can also create large swings in labor and material costs for a given project. Building code differences from one location to the next were not considered when preparing the labor and material cost adjustments presented at the end of the video.
