Cost of Building a 2 Story Vs. 1 Story

16 years ago

Hello All,

Have been a long time lurker here and am almost ready to move to the next step of getting the plans and getting quotes. Before i move to much further i would like to see if anyone may know this.

My wife and I like this two story home (Will be our fist home together) but we were wondering is it more expensive or cheaper to build a two story vs a single story? We live in South Louisiana and were just wondering. Before we spend the money on the plans.

Thanks to all in advance. Many of you here have such beautiful homes.
