The quote for a 6 x 12 side addition. No basement - built on tech. posts, partially complete. No electrical, insulation, drywall, paint, flooring, trim, doors. 1 4x5 vinly window, viny b&b siding, asphalt shingles. Hydro move hsa been estimated at 2K.

"I think this addition, enclosed but not finished (piles, framing, siding, roofing, windows, moving Hydro) can cost between $50k and $60k."

The estimate seems high to me.

Hi Jeff,

That is ridiculously high. For that price you should be getting a foundation, single storey addition complete with finishes and Hydro relocate.
