Oklahoma is a great place to build a home. If you’re trying to decide “the right way” to build your house, you must begin with a solid plan. In Oklahoma, there are many different ways of building. From stick-built homes to modular homes, there are pros and cons for each way of building construction. The cost to build a house in Oklahoma would depend on the materials that you use, how many rooms you want in the house, and other factors.
The average cost to build a house in Oklahoma 2016 was $99 per square foot.
The average cost to build a house in Oklahoma 2016 was $99 per square foot. The average size for new construction homes was 2,400 square feet.
The total cost of building a home can vary greatly depending on the size, location and materials used. The type of home you want to build will also impact how much you spend on your project. The following are some ways to save money when building your dream house:
- Buy in bulk from lumber and other suppliers who sell large quantities at discounted prices;
- Hire licensed contractors who are insured and carry workers’ compensation coverage;
- Use energy-efficient appliances and lighting fixtures;
The average size for new construction homes was 2,400 square feet.
The average size for new construction homes was 2,400 square feet. This is a little larger than the national average of about 2,300 square feet. It’s also significantly larger than it was five years ago (1,800 square feet). When you’re building your own Oklahoma home, size does matter. If you want to be able to host parties with all your friends and neighbors comfortably, then choosing a house that has enough space is important.

The average cost of a home in Oklahoma is $100 per square foot. The average size of a new home in Oklahoma is 2,500 square feet, which means that the average new house costs $250,000. That’s a lot less expensive than many other states, but still not cheap.
So the overall cost to build a house in Oklahoma 2016 was $99 per square foot, and the average size for new construction homes was 2,400 square feet. In Tulsa, home builders charged a median price of $100 to build a new home.
So what does this mean? It’s important to consider all expenses when budgeting your own project—not just what it will cost you to pay your builder or contractor. The total may surprise you when all is said and done.
The first step in building a home is planning. Planning costs are the costs of getting plans drawn up and approved by the city. The cost can vary depending on whether you hire an architect or engineer to draw your plans, as well as how many revisions you make before approving them.
Permits and Site Prep Cost
The permits and site prep cost is another cost that must be factored into your budget. Permits are required for any building project, and they can vary in price depending on the size of your home and the type of construction you plan to use. In general, a permit costs between $200-300 per square foot. If you’re planning on having an addition built onto your existing home, then you will also have to pay for separate permits for that part of the project as well. This means that if yours is an average-sized two-story house with 2,000 square feet (or about 200 feet) total—and let’s say you want to add onto it with a garage in the back—then this would mean paying approximately $4,500 just for permits alone.
In addition to paying for these licenses from government agencies like OSHA or FEMA so that workers won’t get hurt while doing their jobs during construction (which includes electricians working on wiring), there are other types such as Commercial Property Management Licenses which require taking classes before being eligible.
Preparing the Land Cost
Preparing the land is an essential part of building a house, but it can also be very expensive. To get an idea of the costs associated with preparing your land, you should consider the following things:
- Clearing the land of trees and other vegetation
- Removing rocks and debris from your site (this will require heavy equipment)
- Leveling out any hills or valleys on your property
The framing cost is the most expensive part of building a house, and it can be as much as $30 per square foot. This cost varies depending on the size of your home and where you live in Oklahoma. The average framing rate in Oklahoma City is around $15-$20 per square foot, while Tulsa’s average framing rate is closer to $20-$25 per square foot.
If you’re looking to build a smaller house—say 3,000 square feet or less—you might be able to get away with paying an average of $11-$14 per square foot for your framing costs. However, if you plan on going bigger than 4,000 square feet then expect to spend anywhere from $17-$23 per square foot on your framing costs alone.
Insulating the House Cost
Insulation is the most important part of a home’s energy efficiency, and it can be installed in the attic, walls, and floors. The cost of insulation varies based on the type and amount of insulation you need.
The most common types of insulation are:
- Blown-in fiberglass
- Rolled-in cellulose (made with recycled newspaper) or mineral wool
- Spray foam. If you decide to use spray foam rather than another type of insulation, expect to pay more for this option because it requires special equipment that must be rented by a contractor or specialized subcontractor.
Roofing is the most expensive part of a house. The cost of roofing depends on the style, material and size of the roof. Roofs can last for a long time if properly maintained and repaired over time.
Exterior Siding, Tim & Gutters Cost
Exterior siding, timber and gutters are some of the most important parts of a home. The outermost layer of your home, called siding, is made up of different materials such as brick or stone. Timber is another popular material used to build homes in the United States. Gutters are also an essential part of any structure since they help collect water from roofs and direct it to where it needs to go.
Interior Walls and Trim Cost
Another way to save money on your home is by ordering your interior walls and trim from a local supplier. While this option may not be available in all areas, it’s definitely worth investigating if you can find a decent local dealer.
While some people shy away from buying materials directly from suppliers because they don’t want to pay as much for them, the truth is that many times these items will cost less than what you’d pay at a retail store like Home Depot or Lowes. In addition to saving money on your purchase, buying locally also helps keep businesses thriving in the area where you live which benefits everyone.
Flooring, Paint & Cabinets Cost
The cost of installing flooring will vary depending on the type of flooring you choose to install. You can save money by hiring a team to lay tile or vinyl in your home’s kitchen and bathroom areas, as these are more difficult to install by yourself. However, if you prefer wood floors or carpet, then it is probably best for you to do this work yourself. The average cost of installing ceramic tile is $3-$6 per square foot; however, if you are going with slate tiles (which are much more expensive), expect that figure to go up significantly.
The average painting costs in Oklahoma City range from $10-$20 per square foot; however, if there are multiple rooms or hallways being painted then this number could easily double. Costs will also vary depending on whether it’s just walls being painted or trim as well; so make sure that both types are included when calculating how much paint will cost overall (you’ll need enough paint on hand anyway). Finally–if renovations include new cabinets then expect those costs too–they run anywhere between $1500 – $5000 depending on style/quality desired etcetera…
Windows and Doors Cost
Windows and doors are a major factor in the cost of building a house. Windows are more expensive than doors because they are more complex, but they are also more important to the energy efficiency of your house.
The cost of windows varies based on several factors: size, color and framing material (vinyl/wood). Doors tend to cost less because they do not require as much detail work as windows do.
Electrical Installation and Wiring Cost
The electrical system, whether residential or commercial, is the heart of any home or workplace. It’s what keeps us safe and comfortable in our homes, offices and businesses. The cost of installing and wiring an electrical system can vary greatly depending on the complexity of your project but it will generally be around $1,500 to $3,500 per unit (i.e., bedroom).
The costs associated with installing an electrical system include:
- Electrical Fixtures: These are items like light fixtures and switches that have been installed during construction; they may be included in your budget or paid for separately by you at the time of installation. To give you an idea of how much these fixtures cost individually, here are some examples: A basic one-lamp ceiling fixture can cost between $5 to as much as $25 depending on its size and features (for example light bulbs). A standard doorbell chime might run from $15-$50 depending on whether it’s battery powered or hardwired into your home’s power source; while a motion detector light sensor could range anywhere from $30-$100 depending on how many rooms need coverage within your house/apartment building etc..
Plumbing Installation and Piping Cost
Plumbing costs, like other construction costs, vary greatly depending on the size of your house and how much plumbing is involved. The cost also depends on whether you hire professionals or do the work yourself.
- Installing plumbing in a new home – If you build a new house from scratch, the plumber will set up all of your pipes, drains, and fixtures before drywall installation begins. A complete list of materials would include: copper supply line (pipe) for water; PVC drain lines; toilet water line; shower valve enclosures with control valves (mixer faucets); tub spout assemblies; fittings used as connections between fixed piping components such as elbows and reducers; flexible connectors/hose assemblies connecting to sink or appliance taps/faucets.
HVAC- Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning, and Ductwork
Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning, and Ductwork includes the cost of installation and materials. It also includes the cost of ductwork and insulation. You can include the cost of furnaces, air conditioners, and other HVAC equipment in this section as well.
HVAC is a necessity when living in Oklahoma. The climate is very hot during summer months which can make you uncomfortable if you don’t have a functional system installed inside your home.
The cost of building a house in Oklahoma is higher than the national average. The average home price per square foot is $100, which is much higher than the national average of $86. There are many factors that contribute to this difference including labor costs for skilled workers and materials used in construction. The average size for new construction homes was 2,400 square feet, which included an additional 400 square feet for unfinished basements or attics.
