The cost of building a new home in Kelowna

The most frequent question everyone asks is "How much does it cost to build a new home in the Okanagan?"  At Hartley Homes we help the owners to establish a budget by providing a "Rough Cost" based on the style of home and building site. The "Rough Cost" can be as simple as providing the cost as a price range i.e. $190 to $225 / sq ft.  At Hartley Homes we provide the "Rough Cost" broken into major cost segments so the clients understand where the money will be spent.  Once we understand the owners budget and the owner understands how far their budget will take them, we then proceed with a "Detailed Cost".  We believe in a totally in a transparent cost approach with our clients including our builders fees!

Our cost approach is broken into 5 categories:
Pre-construction Cost
Ground Works
Utility Costs
Construction Cost
Owner Allowances
