So the wife and I are looking at building a house... yeah, I know.
We have the lot and it's been surveyed and we've been working with a guy designing our house plans and now we are shopping those out to builders.
Not looking at anything TOO extravagant but definitely not a shack either. We'll have a main level and a walk-out basement (finished), probably 3000-3300 total square feet.
Anyone here built a home lately? Material-wise we're looking at mainly some cedar shakes siding, stonework and maybe a little brick, hardwood floors (main level) with stamped concrete in the basement. Three car garage (got to have a place for the boat) and nice fixtures...you get the idea.
We've got three builders working on some bids and should be hearing back within the next week or so. Just wondering what to expect as far as price per square foot etc. or any other hints you have (those who have been through it).
