What does your base model cost and what does that pricing include?

At Stillwater Dwellings, we take a detailed and comprehensive approach to project pricing. Our focus is on providing clients with an all-encompassing total project cost, rather than offering limited or fragmentary estimates. The cost to build a Stillwater home varies significantly depending on factors such as geographic location, site conditions, and client-specific requirements.

For our Signature Series designs, the base cost typically ranges between $500 to $750 per square foot. However, the final cost is influenced by several factors: the specific design selected, the finishes chosen, the level of customization needed, and the prevailing cost of building materials at the time of construction.

Our pricing structure is also inclusive, covering various aspects of the home building process. This includes professional guidance through the site permitting process, architectural modifications tailored to your preferences, detailed structure and mechanical engineering, the prefabrication of your home, and its delivery to your site. By integrating all these elements into our pricing, we ensure that our clients have a clear and transparent understanding of the overall project costs from the outset.
