Concrete costs


I'm looking at building either 1277sf split-level, or a 1500sf ranch with a walk out basement. What should I expect for a difference in cost for the foundation? Obviously the ranch will be more expensive, but how much more is the question.

I'll say $100k.

"How much will it cost?" Asking for price estimates here.

I am the GC for this project and would just like to get an idea before I start bidding it out.

Calling yourself a GC and actually being one aren't the same thing.

Being able to break down the absolutes from the variables in this sort of question doesn't require being a concrete guy...
