    Craig if too off topic please move to the Ash Can. I figured most here own homes and might find this info interesting
    Location Eastern MA boston suburbs
    $150 per sq ft and up depending on components and customizing. Same on custom new homes.
    Personally I never used this formular per sq ft. I figure out the materials and get subcontractor price quotes.
    If I am framing it I estimate my time and go from there. My experience it sq foot pricing tend to be high.
    Reported yeaterday this area housing market is down 20%
    Expect 20% increases in insulation materials soon

    unfortunately windows and glass products have already increased Andersen 20% first of Feb.
    Insulation expect 20% increase this year if not more. It's a shame it is going to cost more to save fuel

    Everything is going up except salaries! We were at HD yesterday and were comenting on how much things have gone up since just last summer! Even further I used to by sheetrock about 3 years ago - 4.15 a sheet. Now 9.49l 2x4 - 1.79 now 3.09 Insulation approx 4-5 dollar a roll increase! Its insane. I am soo glad we finished our addition last summer!
