HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO BUILD A SHOME?

The time it takes to build a shome can vary depending on several factors such as the size, complexity, and location of the project, as well as the availability of materials and labor. The physical building process of a house from start to finish can take around 9 months to a year on average. However, this estimate does not include any pre-building steps such as obtaining permits, designing the blueprint with your team of professionals.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO BUILD A SHOME?

Building your dream Shome is a unique and exciting journey, and the cost will vary depending on your specific vision and needs. While we understand the desire for a definitive price range, it's important to remember that each Shome is crafted to its owner's desires and the land it sits on.
 

To offer a general guideline, Shomes typically range in cost from $350,000 to $750,000+. This range reflects the influence of various factors, including:

  • Size: The overall square footage of your Shome will significantly impact the cost.

  • Complexity: Simpler designs with fewer intricate features will generally be more affordable than highly customized Shomes with unique layouts or finishes.

  • Material Quality: Choosing high-end materials will increase the cost compared to standard options.

  • Location: Building costs can vary depending on how far our team will have to travel to build your shome.

  • Site Development: If your lot lacks essential infrastructure like a well, septic system, or electricity, additional costs will be incurred for installing those necessities.

Remember, this range is just a starting point. We encourage you to contact our team for a personalized consultation. We'll work with you to understand your vision, assess your land, and can provide you with a more accurate ballpark estimate for what your shome could cost.
