| Financial Info, Cost and Size
Here are some financial
breakdowns to give you an idea as to general costs for
my custom cabins in Detroit, Oregon. These are estimates based
on average building and lot costs. They are fairly
accurate, but each project is unique. Please see my
notes below for more info.
My prices for cabins start at $135,000 and
go to about $252,000. My average price per square foot
for building is $115. Add the cost of the lot and
development costs. What do you get with that? Here is
a sample breakdown of all estimated costs -
Size Examples- (sizes vary and can be
a. 600 sq ft = 20' x 30' or 20'
x 20' with 200 sq ft loft
b.1000 sq ft = 24' x
32' with 232 sq ft loft or 24 x 24 with 424 sq ft 2nd
c.1500 sq ft = 32' x 36' with 400 sq ft
1. Cost of House -
a) 600 sq ft home x $115 sq ft = $69,000 (cost of house
b) 1000 sq ft home x $115 sq ft = $115,000
2. Add Cost of Lot - Lots in
Detroit range from around $30,000-$90,000 with most in
the 50-60K range.
Development (Septic, Driveway, Water, City
Fees, Engineering, Permits and Initial Costs) -
COST ESTIMATE -
Example 1 - 600 sq ft home -
$69K house + 50K lot + 26K development = $145,000
Example 2 - 800 sq ft home - $92K + 50K lot + 26K
development = $168,000
Example 3 - 1000 sq ft home -
$115K house + 50K lot + 30 K development = $195,000
Example 4 - 1500 sq ft home - $172K house + 50K lot + 30
K development = $252,000
Each Project is unique
and has varied costs depending upon what needs to be
done on the lot itself. You need to first have an idea
of the size of cabin you want, then the specific lot.
Septic systems and development costs vary for each
situation. I can give you an accurate cost when more
specific choices are made, but these estimates are
fairly accurate to give you an initial idea as to what a
cabin and lot would cost.
Other Important Notes
Owner Sweat Equity - Want to
do some of the work yourself? I am open to working with
you and reducing the construction costs.
Detroit System Development Fees - The city
charges approximately $11,000 for a system fee. This can
be paid up front during construction or in monthly
installments of $283 for 5 years. Payments begin when
permits are issued.
- I am able to get you some short term owner carry
contracts if you want to pay for the land that way. Some
lot owners are open to 3-5 year contracts with 10-20%
Lot Discounts - As a
builder and resident of Detroit I am also
able to negotiate reduced lot costs in most situations.
Cash of course helps with discounts. Please work with me
on this for the best deal.
Financial & Ownership Options - There are many
creative ways to own a cabin. Fractional/Joint ownership
is one way in which you can have use of a cabin several
months out of the year and share the expense of building
and maintenance. The rental market is also very active
in Detroit. Consider renting your cabin on a part-time
basis to help with the expense. Talk to me about various
options. I am open to working with you and your budget.
| Sample Plans &
cabin is unique that I build. Here
are a few sample plans from
the CAD NW website to
give you an idea of what we can design and build. We work with CAD
NW, who provide affordable draft services to customize and create your special cabin design.
I almost always add extra windows on my custom cabins
and extra deck space so you can enjoy nature at its best
- both inside and out. Most of my designs also
include an open expansive living room with a vaulted
ceiling, a sleeping loft, and at least one private
All designs can be modified, customized,
to fit your needs and styles. Want to add more windows
and a larger deck? We can most certainly do so. Want to add another bathroom or
fireplace? We can modify and customize any plan or
create a new one for you.
Have an idea or vision? Let me know and
we can design and build it. From 600 sq ft to 1,500 sq
ft - smaller or larger, we can create what you want. Take a look and
get some ideas for your unique design. (click on
