Two Cost questions: Building Plans, & 1 Level vs. 2 Level Homes:

15 years ago

DH and I are looking at house plans that are roughly 1700 finished square feet, some plans are 2 level homes and some are 1 level. Does anyone know if there is a major cost difference between building the two home types, provided the square footage is the same? If it makes a difference in the answer, we'd like an unfinished basement as well.

Another "cost" question: Is there a *major* cost difference between buying a house plan flat out and using it versus having one drawn up for us? We are having a hard time finding house plans where we love both the exterior AND the interior, or vice versa.

Thanks for your input, one clueless mama here :)
