When looking for a home plan, what features add more cost to a house that I may wish to avoid if I am on a limited budget?

Outside columns will add to the hard costs of construction as they cannot be figured in the heated and cooled square foot price.  Although paladian windows do add to the exterior looks of the home, it also adds to the cost.  Large “southern-home” style front, back, and side porches will add to your cost in framing labor and material, handrails labor and material, and painting labor and material.  You also have to factor in the ceilings for the porches which will add framing labor and material.
