Understanding the Costs and Timeline: Building a custom home in Miami is a significant undertaking, both in terms of cost and time. The average home building cost in Miami ranges between $350 to $800 per square foot. The construction costs largely depend on the type of property, construction area, and customizations you desire. Additionally, you need to budget for land expenses and permit costs, which can vary widely based on location and project complexity. 

It’s important to note that building your own house is not just expensive but also time-consuming. On average, homeowners spend 14 to 18 months building a house (after permit approval from the city), from the initial planning and design stages to the final construction and finishing touches. During this time, it’s crucial to have a dedicated team of professionals, like Design Solutions, by your side to guide you through every step of the process and ensure that your dream home becomes a reality.
