    Standardize the size of home: When building a home, it's best to work with even numbers, most building materials are more readily available in even measurements. Your home size should be rounded up or down in increments of two feet, and which will reduce material waste.

    The most economical building size is up to 32 feet in depth. Exceeding this size will require roof trusses that are specially designed for the project and will be certainly be more expensive.

    Shape of the building: Homes that are a rectangular shape will cost less to build. Houses that have a number of angles and corners will increase the building cost inclusive of both materials and labour.  Dome shaped homes can be designed to efficiently use materials, costing less to build than other shape types.

    Build on a flat lot: Preparing a site for construction can have a substantial impact on the cost of building a home. Building on a flat land will usually cost less.  It is more expensive to prepare land for construction if the site requires building up the land by hauling dirt, grading, clearing trees, or blasting rocks.

    Additional features Can add to the overall project cost: The number of additional features that you include in the design will likely increase the cost of construction and will usually take longer to complete the project. Typically the most expensive areas in a home are the kitchen and bathrooms. The number of windows as well as their size and quality of windows can greatly affect the overall cost. Vaulted ceilings and high pitched roofs will likewise increase the cost of a home.

    If you are using other homes to calculate a building estimate, you must ensure similarities to your design in both style and features.

    Careful Planning: Often, the finished cost of a home is more then the original bid price resulting from cost overruns. Cost overruns occur from overspending the preset allowances arising from making changes or encountering unforeseen problems. Proper planning can greatly reduce cost overruns. Try to minimize change orders, which requires that the owner must ensure that the building specifications are as detailed as possible. As a general rule you should allow an additional 10% to cover unexpected costs.
