How about my spreadsheet of costs. Attached as Quattro Pro and as Excel?

This is all construction costs as of today. Doesn't count lot, landscape, sweat equity, diesel fuel, etc.
This is a 2350 sq ft home m.o.l. Costs for shell and foundation. Windows not yet installed, electrical, complete less finish installation of switches & outlets.
Plumbing rough-in complete. Water heater, la bomba & tinaco are in. Gas is ready for cyclinders to connect.
We are looking for a finished total cost between $900,000 pesos and $1,000,000 pesos, again less landscape & lot.
Don't forget that I have been the construction manager, buying all materials & paying cash weekly to workers, since we let the architect go. It's been more cost effective that way.
Build-it-yourselfers: Architects usually take a % of material & labor costs for themselves. Make sure that you have the amount engraved in stone, iron-clad in the contract. Look for construction contracts on the internet. Then again. It don't mean a thing if it ain't in espanol!
