House Improvement Estimate Costs

If we were to gutted the interior (about 4,000 sq ft), i.e. just complete renovation and no need to move around the pipes, what is the estimate total cost?   Just a bulk part.  Assume standard materials, nothing fancy.

Hi,

  It isn't possible to estimate the cost of renovation without very specific information and, for a project of your size, a walkthrough of the property.  Any numbers we could provide you with would be just plain guesswork and could be off by 50% or more.  There is no substitute for properly planning a project before getting price information as the choices you make will be one of the key factors in determining the price.

  I recommend selecting a contractor or architect and designing the project while talking about rough prices.  Don't expect a free estimate from a contractor if they are helping with the design.  A good contractor wouldn't(and shouldn't) dedicate the necessary time to properly design a large project without compensation.

I hope this helps,
Ethan
