What is the average cost per square foot for building a house in South Carolina?

If you are going to build the house and pay for materials only, and you already own the land I would think in the $40-$50/ft range. If you add the building, and land cost into the Sq Ft, it would be in the $75-100 Sq FT range.

Track homes with land included are going to run in the $100-150/sq. ft. range. If you own the land and are having a custom builder build new, your square foot prices could run from $125-200 or more very easily. On a brand new kitchen alone in todays economy, you will spend $50k (national average).

What is the average cost of an apartment in Portland Oregon?

For a small apartment or studio in Portland, Oregon you will be looking at a low of about $350 in the outside areas to upwards of $800 in the heart of the city. Of course, there are your exceptionally fancy studio lofts in the Pearl type areas that will run even more! If you qualify for low income housing and you're wanting to live downtown, check out The Yards down on Front in NW.

If you're in the market for a 1-2 bedroom apartment, you'll find most to be in the $500 to $1300 range. A fantastic one bedroom with views of Mt Hood or downtown Portland at Buckman Terrace (16th & NE Sandy) will run you about $900 but keeps you close to everything. Again, if you're looking for swanky you can definitely get yourself into a fancy apartment downtown... but you're looking at at least $1500+. The Sylvan Heights area has quite a few places that are quite nice in the $1300 range. You'll get your money's worth there, in an almost new place, but you're going to have to fight that Hwy 26 traffic during rush hour!

Additional costs you will need to consider are: does the landlord pay utilities? Which one(s)? Pet fees? Parking costs? Commute costs? Moving costs?

Where can you buy modeling clay?

I want modeling clay, the kind that does not dry out. About how much will that cost. please awnser thanks.

You are probably wanting polymer clay. It is a material that will thermoset, that is, harden permanently when baked at a low temperature. Despite being called "clay", it generally contains no clay minerals. Polymer clay hardens by curing at temperatures created in a typical home oven generally at 129 to 135 °C (265 to 275 °F) for 15 minutes per 6 mm (1/4") of thickness and does not significantly shrink or change texture during the process.

Polymer clay is sold in craft, hobby and art stores, and is used by artists, hobbyists and children. Polymer clay is also popular in animation since it allows static forms to be firm and not be deformed by things like fingerprints and toolmarks while modifying the scene. Leading brands of polymer clay include Fimo, Kato Polyclay, Sculpey & Madello.

You can get modeling clay on Amazon.com for $12.78 for a one pound box. Here's the link.
