We are planning on building a new house in the Irishtown N.-B. area next year and were wondering the costs per square footage for low, med. high end?

We have a plan made for a 2600 square feet home, open concept, rear end elevation.

Any response would be appreciated.

I really depends on the quality of finishes you want, as well as the design. You could spend anywhere from $120-250 per square foot. You could go even higher if your looking at a more luxurious design.

If you need some assistance with planning feel free to contact me.
