    For your information, and I am willing to bet that you are from St. John's, the average home in Lewisporte is definitely more expensive than St. John's or probably 80% of the homes in NL based strictly on supplies, labour, furnishings, etc. and leaving out the added value for location and land and that sort of thing. Lewisporte has an absurd amount of luxury homes per capita and I am willing to bet that you'd be surprised if you had to pay for the construction of an average home in Lewisporte.
