Teton Heritage Builders has been building in the Rocky Mountains for more than 16 years. Between the 200 years of construction experience in our team we’ve gained a lot of knowledge about what drives the costs for building a new home and we want to share that information with you.
After a survey of our teammates we’ve narrowed down the greatest factors that influence new home costs in the Rockies to five main categories. Overlooking just one of these factors can lead to a significant jump in building costs whether you are in Big Sky, Jackson Hole, Bozeman, or any other region in the Northern Rockies for that matter.
The five main factors that influence cost of new homes are: Site Access and Conditions, the Exterior Skin of the Home, Architectural Design, Mechanical and Electrical Systems, and the Finishes. They may seem obvious now that they are out in the table, but each category has nuances that influence the costs of every other category. Not fully identifying the details in any one of these categories will have a cascade effect on your budget that can come back to haunt you as the project moves forward.
