Voted Iron County's Home Builder of the Year

Is it less expensive to build a basement or a second story?

Is it less expensive to build a basement or a second story?

This question gets asked a great deal and the answer is driven by the market and current material prices. Generally speaking, building up tends to be less expensive than a basement. That said, not too long ago, lumber was at an all-time high and basements were the better option. Check with your builder and they can advise you on the pros, cons, and cost of each.
