Splish Co. purchased land as a factory site for $544,000. The process

of tearing down two old buildings on the site and constructing the factory required 6 months.

The company paid $57,120 to raze the old buildings and sold salvaged lumber and brick for $8,568. Legal fees of $2,516 were paid for title investigation and drawing the purchase contract. Splish paid $2,992 to an engineering firm for a land survey, and $92,480 for drawing the factory plans. The land survey had to be made before definitive plans could be drawn. Title insurance on the property cost $2,040, and a liability insurance premium paid during construction was $1,224. The contractor's charge for construction was $3,726,400. The company paid the contractor in two installments: $1,632,000 at the end of 3 months and $2,094,400 upon completion. Interest costs of $231,200 were incurred to finance the construction.

Determine the cost of the land and the cost of the building as they should be recorded on the books of Splish Co. Assume that the land survey was for the building.
