plus any concrete work outside shop for parking or driveway etc
that dont include all the other stuff like interior finish out like storage rooms heating or air conditioning etc
cost should be around 10-15 % higher at todays rates
Those numbers sound much closer to reality...
I'm not saying it can't be done for less, but if you're wanting something pretty nice, it's gonna' cost some bucks.
Seemed like when mine was going up in 2004, freakin' steel prices were escalating upwards daily... brick work, electrical, plumbing, septic system, driveways, concrete, interior finish-out, drywall, painting and staining, floor coverings, HVAC, windows, insulation, doors, blinds, internal wiring for TV & H/S internet, cabinets & counter tops, fixtures, appliances & it goes on & on...
but the end product turned out pretty nice... and I'm really proud of it.
It's pretty efficient as well, electric bills average about 125.00 per month... highest has been about 160.00 in the summer, lowest about 65.00 in the fall/spring.
