Cool 40x30 garage with upstairs apartment

Hello everyone, I am in the process of building a 40x30 garage with an upstairs living space. The upstairs will be 16x40 and have an enclosed bathroom with a tub shower. The garage will have a furnace and hot water. there will also be a kitchen sink and garage wash area. It will have 2 garage doors, one 16 ft door and one 8ft door by 8 ft high. My contractor is doing everything but the painting and septic system. The entire garage will be insulated,drywalled, plumbing and electric. There will be a total of four windows and 2 steel man doors. He is also laying a 5x40 concrete slab in the front of the garage as well as doing a 15x40 gravel area in front of the garage. The building will be wooden frame, with siding and shingles and gutters. What do you guys think a fair price is for this job?? I just got my first estimate today for $73,500.

Where do you live? 73 doesnt seem bad for almost full fit and finish.

I'm guessing around the New Castle area? That's about 60 miles north and where I plan to buy or build in the near future. I like the sounds of the place you're going to do, but can't comment on the price at this time. Have any drawings showing what you plan to do?
