Re: hillside construction costs

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Oh yeah...  The hillside is sliding.  In my preliminary report, I've mentioned getting a geo report done.  I could imagine the hillside stabilization could be as much as rebuilding the superstructure.

Start off with getting a soil report.   My experience is that the foundation may cost as much as the house.

Can anyone help me out with some general (overall) construction costs for wood frame structures on a hillside.  A client is asking for an "order of magnitude" cost estimate for an existing 1+ story wood building to (1) raze and rebuild, or (2) rehab.

This is in the SF bay area (Berkeley) with a total habitable area of about 2,400 sq. ft. with a wrap-around deck of about 1,000 sq. ft.  This is a park clubhouse, and not a residence, if that would make any difference.

Thanks in advance.
