Building a new home in Nevada County
Aug 14, 2021

Nowadays, people prefer living in their own house. Home ownership comes with lots of undeniable advantages such as relaxing in your own garden, playing with children in the fresh air, having barbeque with friends, etc. But before you get all that, you have to go through the building process. Therefore, it is not surprising that the decision to start building a home in Nevada is an important stage in the life of any family.

Construction costs

For every person new home construction in Las Vegas is a quite costly experience. You have to pay for the land lot, lots of different materials, labor and so on. Very often the costs increase over the course of the construction project, but no one wants to spend much more on construction as originally anticipated.

So, in order to keep track of all the expenses and prevent them from increasing, it’s essential to have a competent company responsible for construction project management. Titon “All In One” offers such service. We’ll guide you through construction stages helping you save your money.

Is it cheaper to build a one-story house?

Surprisingly, building a one-story house can turn out even more expensive than a two-story one, since it has a larger foundation and will require more roofing materials and those are the most expensive things in construction. On the other hand, in a one-story house you can always minimize “useless” square footage like corridors and halls, whereas in a two-story one it’s unlikely to do that.

But remember that you can never find two identical houses. There will be different areas, different design features and, consequently, the price. A one-story house can be cheaper than a two-story house as well as it may be more expensive. Therefore, choose a home based on what type of property you prefer to live in and build the option that you like best.

How big of a house can you build for 200k?

$200k is enough for a small family to build a house of 1200 – 1500 square feet with 2-3 bedrooms.

Renovate the old or build a new house?

The question is debatable. Generally, it all depends on the condition of the house and the homeowner’s desire. In most cases, new custom home construction in Las Vegas turns out more profitable and practical.

Let’s look at these options from different perspectives.

1. In terms of costs

Building a new house in Las Vegas can be significantly cheaper than renovating an old home. This is primarily because new construction means starting with a vacant land lot and choosing the home design that best suits the way you live. During the renovation of an old house there are, as a rule, hidden issues bringing about extra expenses. You also might deal with difficult choices that come with working with an existing home.

What is more, when building a new home, you can be aware of the necessary costs from the very beginning. That is, of course, if you work with a reliable construction company, such as Titon “All In One”, providing professional custom home building services. In contrast, home renovation may lead to unexpected costs related to hidden plumbing or electrical problems, etc.

2. In terms of design

When you build a new home, you can get exactly what you want. You can devise the home design according to your needs and preferences and easily change the size, configuration, or arrangement of rooms before the actual start of your construction project. Contrariwise, home renovations are often limited to the original structure of the house. This means there will always be a compromise between your dream home and making the most of what you have now, whether you like it or not.

3. In terms of location

Renovating your old home is a good idea in case you feel comfortable living in it and plan on some slight alterations. On the other hand, if a different look of your rooms is not enough and you want to change your living conditions and surroundings completely, new home construction is a way to go. It’s because you can even change the neighborhood. And along with starting a new construction project, you can start a new life.

4. In terms of timeline

The time needed to renovate the house depends on its condition as well as the time needed to build a new one depends on its size and complexity of the design. But generally, building a new house in Las Vegas takes longer.

So, if you set your mind on getting a new home with a customized design in a new neighborhood, it’s better to start a new construction project. But if you love your current house and just need minor changes, home renovation is for you.

How long does it take to build a house in Las Vegas?

There’s no exact answer to this question. You should take into consideration the construction site, type of property and its features. Approximately it takes half a year to build a standard house in Las Vegas. If the design consists of many customized features, it will take longer.
