Total Shell Budget

Finished shell$30,800
$71,100Shell TOTAL

NB: This results in a total construction price of approximately $71/sq.ft. for the 1000 sq.ft. The Mille Moden.

The am-cor System gives a 30% savings, compared to the national average of approximately $100/sq.ft. for basic, residential builder's specification using standard construction.

We estimate that a DIY Owner-Builder may be able to perform much of the labor included in the $71,100 price as sweat-equity, thereby lowering the total shell price to approximately $51,800.


No siteworks, flat land, no unusual site conditions, no site utilities, construction practices detailed in the am-cor Field Manual, no builder markup, no taxes, permits, fees, etc. Actual building costs may vary significantly per project and may not necessarily fall within the range of generic costs as calculated. Please note that costs are rough estimates only, time sensitive and not binding as to a specific project.
