Sorry, I wish I could be more helpful but costing is a tricky thing. Too tricky for me, anyway.

Construction Costs - Hi Brooks, I love your floor plans and exteriors. We're considering building in the Chicago suburbs and love your American foursquare homes. Do you know if these are typically less expensive to build because of their square/rectangular shapes? Thanks!

The owner spec'd the color, sorry I can not help you with that one.
Personally, though, I like to have a slightly contrasting color on top and bottom.

This is another example of what I don't like. I am thinking that I definately don't like the combination of the brick and siding. However if you added stone stratigically with the brick and siding it may be more appealing.
