Choose the layout and size of each room, the material with which to build it, the presence or absence of a garden, a box, its shape and height: practically living in a place made with your mind and partly with your own hands.

But how easy or complex is all this? And above all how much would it cost? Is it an idea that is too bizarre and tiring to implement?

Today’s article has a purpose: to answer all these questions and then provide a lot of information to those who are thinking about starting the project: how much does it cost to build a house in Italy ?

Should you buy or build your own home from scratch ? Do you save money if you decide to do it yourself?

A fundamental choice towards independence

This guide has been written drawing on the precious information of the post to stop working , which deals with the same topic: the writer shares many thoughts of Francesco Narmenni and the reading of his blog has represented and is a source of inspiration for a different life, less attached to money 

If you do not know, I invite you to visit it because it represents in my opinion one of the best spaces of the Italian blogosphere .

Now we come to us and try to understand why building a house can represent an important step towards its own economic independence.

Who wants to be free really must free as soon as possible from rents and mortgages :there are fewer monthly expenses and it is easier to govern their lives, perhaps reducing their needs from money and the need, therefore, to earn a lot.

In the following paragraphs, in particular, we will highlight the economic differences between building a house and buying a house .

It is known that by building a house independently, the person is free to make choices that can positively influence his future, for example by choosing products that allow maximum energy savings , or by installing autonomous systems for the production of electricity or water. hot .

Surely these interventions have a greater cost at the time of installation but then their convenience is felt in the long term.

How to build a house: the decisions to be made

So let’s start with all the steps to follow to build a house from scratch and its costs .

First of all there is a choice to make: ask for a “turnkey” quote , or where the chosen company builds the house according to your indications; or choose every single professional and direct the work yourself , maybe even becoming a laborer.

The first option is the one that is actually more convenient, especially for those not employed in the sector, but it is also the most expensive and least controllable, since it is a fact that you can not have full control over the materials used and the professionals involved.

To get quotes, you could use the  convenient service  provided by the blog: just fill it out with some data concerning your project and you will be contacted by the local companies with accurate forecasts.

Request for Free 3 Estimates

The second way is, on the contrary, more tiring but also the safest if you have some knowledge and skills in the construction industry.

It is also an option that causes a greater loss of time , above all because of the fact that you have to choose every single participant in the work.

Another factor influencing the choice is therefore time: how long do you want to have your apartment ready?

Once you find the answers to these questions the project can really start.

In the following paragraph we will talk about the second option, since the first, the so-called “turnkey”, you do not have much to report, except that the company is chosen to take care of everything and you have to compare the various quotes that will be delivered
