Have you ever appraised a home with a construction cost over $200 per sq.ft.? How about a straw-bale home? A few months ago I appraised a home with a construction cost (per the builder) of $250 per sq.ft. Since it was a new home and an overimprovement, I made lots of calls to figure out if the estimate was correct. Now, I have a new book to use for a reference. I will still have to make some calls, but at least I have a starting point.

Exceptional Homes - A Cost Guide for High-Value and Unique Residences (1998 edition), published by Marshall & Swift, is similar to their other cost books, providing data for both the square foot and segregated cost methods. The manual covers high-value homes up to 20,000 square feet costing $100 to $400 per square foot.
The book has many black and white photographs of exteriors and interiors of homes.

This might be a place to start-- although the New York area, and especially the Hamptons may prove to be even priceyer!--
