DH is building a house. I doubt she will ever return here.

Yeah building a home can be very stressful and time consuming.  If you and you spouse/SO can survive building a home, you can make it thru just about anything.   So many things to pick out, buy, and store somewhere until needed.   We eventually rented 2 large storage units about 1/2 a mile from the home site.  Wait till DH finds out 1 shipping container is too small for all the stuff they need to store.

Anyone venture a guess as to the cost I will pay today? 2 bedroom, 2 bath, garage, 2 modest porches. Of course, I get this message after I get home that it is ready for pickup. 

$110k

Didn't they ask you how much you had?

That was something my builder asked, more like a joke.  Of course I didn't answer. 

Once we were talking about his next home building project.   I mentioned...  "Yeah... I'd like to meet your next victim."

Too low...  I'd guess closer to $220k.

I don't even know what we are guessing about! The permit cost? The materials for the home build? The first check for starting construction? That woman loves to make us work for an answer!

:D I wasn't sure either.   I knew a permit would not cost $110k, so I assumed we ere guessing the cost of the home, not including the lot.

My guess for the permit...  $1500.

My wife's aide has been living with her inlaws. They just got word yesterday that everything is approved and they are buying the neighbor's house for $30,000. Since grandma watches the kids during the day this will be perfect. It's only two bedroom but a good starter house.

Hmm, I've never built a house so I have no idea, but I'll guess $1,000 or maybe $750.

The permit was 5353 today.  I think the total build is somewhere around 290k.

Your junk mail should start arriving in about a week.  Better get your mailbox installed.

I still can't believe this.^^^     My permit was about $750.  It was based on the number of sq ft in the home about 3100.   I thought $1500 would be a lot at double my cost.

I'll reduce my consulting fee to $0.00.    You need good news about the cost of your home.
