The cost to complete your home to occupancy will be dependent on the size, location and complexity of the project. The time taken, availability and quality of trades-people used will affect the labor component. The reality is that it is more important to consider the value of work being done than simply choosing trades based on a low hourly rate.
Choosing the right people can save on a lot of labor cost and fixing problems later on. Generally the use of higher quality material gives you a better finished result, less waste and lower maintenance as well as substantial cost savings during construction.

Big Island Home Builders specializes in more complex structures, such as post and beam, timber-frame or log homes. These kinds of homes use different structural techniques to support the roof and floors and require foundations that are engineered to meet load bearing points.
Although these structures are more costly to build than conventional homes, you can incorporate open plan living, vaulted ceilings and large expanses of glass to maximize the use of natural light. They also generally have a much higher appraised value. We can work with your designer or architect to help you choose the right kind of design and materials to fit your requirements.

Big Island Home Builders uses the best construction practices whether we are building a conventional or more sophisticated structure.
