NAHB [National Association of Home Builders] recently published the latest construction cost survey.  The survey shows that the average home was built on 14,359 square feet of land, had 2,607 square feet of finished area, and sold for $399,532.

The Eye on Housing post links back to the cost survey with detailed breakdowns. Total construction costs for the average home were $246,453. The cost of drywall was $9,376, or 3.8% of the sales price, down from 4.4% in 2011’s survey.
