What it Costs to Construct a Home

For all DIY-ers or those wanting to design their dream house, Zillow has the lowdown on what to factors to consider when contemplating a new construction. Bottom line: don't rely solely on square-foot pricing to determine which type of house is more cost-effective, unless you're looking for vague, ballpark numbers. That's how you end up with a house with half a roof because all the costs weren't factored in. [ZB]
