How Much Does It Cost to Build a House in PA & MD?

When considering how much does it cost to build a house, there are many factors to consider that will influence the base price and the final price of a home! In this post, we will discuss the overall costs to build a new home, the average cost of new construction per square footage, and building On Your Lot.

Overall Costs to Build a New Home

At base price, every Keystone Custom Home is structurally sound, energy efficient, and fully functional. The cost to build a house can be broken down into a few basic categories: land & development, the base home, and options.

Land Costs

There are many costs associated with preparing land to be built on. These factors include developing the land, installing roads, installing utilities, and more.

Prices on our website include a basic homesite. Every community has homesites that have an additional cost/premium if, for example, they are larger, on cul-de-sacs, or back up to woods. Please let your New Home Advisor know if you are interested in a homesite with a premium so that we can be sure to factor it into your overall budget!

Basic Home Costs

From foundation to roofing, your new home is fully functional at base price. Framing, walls, roofing, windows, siding, basic flooring, heating, air conditioning, appliances, countertops, cabinets, lighting, smoke detectors, and so much more are all included in the cost to build a new home. Many of these included features also provide exceptional energy efficiency, saving you money over the lifetime of your home!

Option Costs

Personal Choice Requests (PCRs) offer even more extensive custom options and give you the opportunity to work directly with our team to bring your dream home to life.

Average Cost of New Construction per Square Foot

The pricing on our website includes the basic home and a basic homesite. Because the cost factors vary greatly by homesite, we do not calculate the cost per square foot to build a house.
