The cost to clear land of any trees can range from $500.00 an acre to $2,000.00 per acre and if the lot you need cleared to build the house is more heavily wooded then it could cost you from $3,000.00 to $6,000.00 per acre.

Then there's the cost of building the house which will depend on the type of house you plan to have built and how many square feet the house will be.

It costs around $150.00 per square foot to build a home so for a 2,000 square foot home it can cost around $287,000.00 so if you go larger than 2,000 square foot your cost would obviously go up and can even be as high as $400,000.00 to build the home.
