There's A Contractor here who will build your NEW home. A 2 Bedroom runs $11,900.00 A 3 bedroon Runs $13,900.00 You buy the Permits ( Not required here) All you do is Paint and get the carpeting done. As well as the trim.. So for Less than $17,000.00 You can have A new home. Sounds like A deal to me. This contractor has A decent Rep. The Only thing is His Add is in Spanish. He gets 95% of his work from the Mexicans!! What do you think???

Hmmm...That sounds too good to be true. Are you sure there's not a catch? Have you seen, or do you know anyone who's seen, one of his finished homes? (Or has he even built any of these homes yet?)

What's the square footage?
What R value in the walls?
2x4 or 2x6 framing on what centers?
Are you figuring foundation?

A cheap house won't last as long as a well built house/more expensive house.
Definately check out other houses he's done and ask the owners what it really cost.
Lumber prices fluctuate wildly so get everything in writing.
