The days of builders charging these outrageous prices per sq. ft. are over. All the houses in the Ridge are overvalued by at least 50%. The actual cost of building is between 65 to 100 $ / sq. ft. and with the decrease in materials now and the lack of work it might even be lower. I have researched building a home on the lake for about 1 year and understand the major concepts. A builder will certainly know the minor details that could trip you up when building your own home. I know several people who have built their own home and they are very happy doing this for about 90$ / sq. ft. Everyone needs to make a living and the builders have been riding a gravy train for the last few years until recently. The day of the builders profit being 50% of the bid is OVER. It is not for everyone, but you can try it since anyone can get a Contractor license.
