Cost to build a modern house like this in the bay area?

2 Replies | San Francisco, California

There isn't a ton of modern houses in the bay area, so I'm looking to buy a plot of land and build a modern house. But since there are not many modern houses, there isn't a ton of information on how much it would cost to build one. For anyone that has experience with modern architecture in the bay area, what would you estimate the cost of building a house like this?

Easily $400/sf or more. If it's on a hill side as well go ahead and double that number. With the planning and building dept's heads deep up their rectums plan for 4 years to get your permit.

Is $400/sf including the soft costs or is that just the hard costs?
