    How much would it cost to build a site similar to this?

    I just need an estimate of how much this site would cost to build. Here is the link:

    I'd need a lot more information to give a completely accurate quote, but I'd do it for $1500-$1800

    I'd say Ron's quote is about right, depending on how much editing of images would be required. That takes time and can push the cost upwards.

    It is tough to provide a straight forward price.The details you provide is the integral part of Web development, custom website design and it affects prices as well. Usually 80% of the budget is allocated to the design tasks.Moreover it involves a whole team to develop a website so it is hard to determine how much exactly would this site cost to build.

    Me too. Thank you for clarifying this, Mysterious Indian Lady.

    $50 + the time it would take to do the art.

    WordPress - King Size - Fullscreen Background WordPress Theme | ThemeForest

    ...which shows just how flawed the site is. First of all, it's a theme. That means it's unoriginal. Second, this guy, like many artists, has absolutely no concept of commercialization. If you're going to put up a portfolio like that, it needs to be less about the ego and virtual self-pleasure and more about "how do I get someone to contact me?" He completely forgot about that.

    I'm guessing someone came to you and said "how much would it cost to build a site like this?" The answer you should be giving people is, "why would you want to copy someone else and not do something original?" In this case, that answer is magnified by the fact that the guy used a theme.

    My quote stands, but mostly because I'd still build it out from scratch, as I do all projects. I made a lot of assumptions with that quote as well. I assumed content was the responsibility of the client. I also made the assumption that I'd be hired only to build it out, not to consult on UX, content strategy, etc. In other words, I quoted purely based on what was presented by the OP, who is likely long gone at this point.

    So would I, but the point is that this isn't all that an impressive a site and not very much work went into it. Slap up template, add art that reflects obvious artistic genius that must never be questioned, put online, .... , PROFIT.

    Yeah, I found that theme too.
    I'm just saying if someone wants to pay me to make the site, I can code it and make it work for that amount of money.
    Or I could buy the theme and stuff their content into it for that amount of money.
    Either way.. .

    I guess I'm just getting a bit jaded with all the people trying to pass off purchased themes as original work. I know that's not necessarily so in this case, but I've been really cranky for the last few days...
