Pricing A Morton Buildings Home

Prices may vary considerably based on changes in material cost and location of the project. These prices are only intended to provide an estimated building cost but may not apply in certain areas.

A home designed and constructed from Morton Buildings is truly a unique structure, due to our combination of clear-span timber-frame construction, maximum efficiency and a virtually maintenance-free exterior.  The question often arises: so how much does a Morton home cost?

A variety of factors contribute to the cost of any Morton building. Some of the most significant variables include the size of your building, features you choose for your building, location of your building and the site you plan to build on.

In addition, there are several levels of involvement you can have when constructing your Morton home.  The level you select can significantly impact the process and costs.  Below is a breakdown of the three most common levels of customer involvement:

WHAT DOES IT COST?

Because every Morton home is unique, it can be very difficult to give broad pricing estimates.  There is not a one-price-fits-all answer to that question, but we want to provide a ballpark range as a guideline for three types of homes below.

One of the most critical things to remember when seeking a price for a Morton building is that the most reliable source throughout the design process will always be a local Morton sales consultant, as they are equipped with the knowledge to explain what a building will cost and why it will cost that amount.

Of course, additional costs will become a factor when the remaining finish work is completed. Concrete, HVAC, interior walls, flooring and plumbing are just a few of several critical components in home construction. Finishing costs can range anywhere from $50 per square foot to more than $100 per square foot.
