what is average cost of an inlaw addition
 
I am putting a ~600 sq ft, 1st floor addition to the back of my garage that will include a bedroom, full bath and a living room. I am trying to figure out what I should be expecting as cost for the completed addition. The addition wil be on foundation with craw space that will involve a little excavating(not much) and the exterior will be brick as the rest of the house. I live in the north east and have a quote now that is about $115 sq ft. and am not sure if this is in the ball park of what I should be expecting. By bricking it instead of siding the cost increased about $5 sq ft. is that reasonable. Thanks

$115/sq.ft. is not absurd in New England for residential. We rough estimate (really rough) at $150/sq.ft.. It's your choice of materials that changes that number. $150 is almost commercial grade stuff.

The average cost of an in law suite is your SANITY!!

Your results may vary.

We built one at the end of 2010 for just under $200K. It ended up being a new "small house with a large garage", attached to the smaller original main house - that also included $30K in HVAC upgrades + necessary Plumbing upgrades + necessary Electrical upgrades + 2 small decks areas.....).

In other words = pricing can sometimes be all over the board dependant on the specifics, logistics, finish choices, what upgrades are needed (or required) for the main home, etc. etc. etc....
