The total price of your predesigned Passive House includes four cost variables
This is the most variable cost factor, ranging from a shovel ready city site, to a large undeveloped property on side of a mountain in the Catskills.
If you are you are looking for a site in a more densely populated part of the Hudson Valley, it can also be a good approach to consider finding a tear-down, which can save on your site development costs.
Our base pricing includes all the site planning and permitting needed to build the house on a shovel ready, Hudson Valley town property, with hookups to electrical power, sewer and city water available on the site
Many sites require additional pre-construction planning work, including septic system design, driveway engineering, planning board review, etc.
Cost of developing a raw piece of land. Range depends on size of the parcel, how undeveloped it is, and the complexity of the systems and infrastructure needed including septic system, well drilling, driveway, tree clearing, electrical service, etc
We find that most Hudson Valley properties have site development costs of $60k-$80k
The base pricing on our homes include quality finishes, like a standing seam metal roof, heat pump heating/cooling system, European windows, and Passive House Certification.
You may add additional finish details to your home, such as a deck, custom built-ins, tile, a shiplap wood accent wall, which are added to the base price of the model you choose
