Notice the red line at the bottom of the screen, and the cost calculation at the top left. In this video, you can watch the cost tally from phase to phase, giving you a great idea of where money is spent during the project.
Nearing the end of the build timelapse, totals for individual line items from the build start to pop up. Large chunks of the budget are allocated for items like the post-frame structure, and foundation, these costs are difficult to cut down. You'll notice other items like GC + Design + Permits and finish carpentry, these items can be reduced, but remember, that's only if you're taking over those tasks yourself.
Before giving the final total, the video recaps with more line items and a final lap around the building.
