    Looking at building, what have you guys paid / sq ft to build? I am looking at heated floors, insulated ceilings, walls, lined with steel/plywood. Floor drain, 400 amp electrical service??

    It all depends where you are located. Around here we get 150 per square foot. And yes we have a Virginia Class "A" license.

    I am currently building a 800 sq. ft. detached garage with a 8/12 roof, brick @ vinyl siding, on a concrete slab. I hired-out all jobs except the electrical wiring. I will end up spending no more than $25.00 sq. ft. when finished. :usflag:

    I have been quoted b/t $25 - $40 / sw ft. Everyone is alittle different. Just wondering what you guys charge or have been charged. I realize locations matter and make a difference.

    Well I plan on buying a 1500 sq. ft. shop in town next spring, the guy wants $38,500 for it, I could probably get it for $35,000, so that is about $23 a square foot.
