You are talking about a log home. With labor, plans, cost for the company you buy it from to produce, build, tear, then deliver & set up, structure alone for materials and finish could be $80,000, it could be $250,000. Cost to purchase the property, could be $9,000, could be $110,000. Can't really tell you, because this is the Internet, not a real person that you need to talk to, that deals with this stuff in your area on a full time basis.

"Good Luck getting an answer", especially since you've gone into the 4th dimension. That last one will take some thinking. All kidding aside, you can easily estimate that with a call to your local Ho De Po store, etc. Builders in our area charge anywhere from $120 to $180/sf, turn-key house. Call a few banks or contractors and see what their sf price is; the materials will be about 40-50% of that.

Thank you for pointing that out. I am waiting with bated breath as to the technology involved in this dwelling. I assume it will be named "Tardis, Type 40."

20x20x20x20? Does this house pass into another dimension? Not sure how I bid that. Usually sq ft or cubic ft, but with the fourth dimension I may need to consult with Einstein.

Check on your local codes about using the 4th dimension. Sometimes alternative universes fall under that alternative municipality's rules.

So I'm guessing that 20x20x20x20 means that the building is to be 20x20 two story, or one story/with basment. I built a 20x20 cabin with loft. windows, doors, roof, electrical and insulation ran me about $9000.00. this building I put right on the ground on wood blocks, so I saved some there. that is the best i can do.

It's nice to have a comedian on the forum.

Leah, I was in love with you until I found out you are a Dr. Who fan.

Well, no-one is perfect.

Andy.

Tardif-Tardis----Andy did you design the original and the producers misspelled the name?





And you still resent it after all these years?
