    This question is for those that build houses for a living

    I am wondering what the current average cost per square foot is for single story homes in the US.
    I realize this is "how long is a piece of string" and that regional differences will alter things dramatically but what is a ballpark figure. Even say just framing ?

    $10-$20 sq. ft. for materials.
    $5-15 sq. ft. for labor.
    for framing.

    about $100 sq. ft. turn key and up.

    ...and up is correct! Regionally there are huge differences. Here it is estimated $150-$175 per square foot for the building. And the yard has to be landscaped before the permit is signed off.
