Geez then this might be a little out of my budget. I have a piece of land pending close to the Woodlands. The price of houses in that area are outrageous. I guess I will have to tell the fiancee that we cannot build their.

250 for a custom for a Woodlands lot? The builders pay less than 90k in Sterling Ridge.

12,000 sf lots in Memorial cost you 1/2 a mil ++, then you have to knock the house down.

But compare to anything out on the water and it's a deal.

The 90K lots are for tract home builders that buy up a bunch. Any custom sections are much much more.

Cheap and Custom?
My cousin finished his "cheap" custom in Memorial. It was the cheapest of the customs builders (Christoper Sims), but at the end of the day with the lot and home he was at 3.73M.

you might see if Tom Tynan Homes can build you something...they are about 150 -200 SF

Why in the world would you want a 'cheap' builder? Do you want to live in a crappy shack that will blow over in the first wind storm?

You can ask that question to those who bought a cheap crappy KB home. Some love them and none ever blew over in the wind.

LOL...when I said cheap I didnt mean the quality of the work. I meant comparatively to other builders the price is lower for the same type of work.
