The current home was a custom design, but only $80/ft not including the land, which I purchased separately. This isn't really comparable, though, since I didn't work through a builder and did many of the sub-projects myself. I also offset some of the costs through the sale of lumber being cleared for the project, as well as ginseng that grows on property. Those two items nearly offset the total cost of the land.

Man...I have never seen people go so crazy over something like that in all my life. I grew up in an urban environment. I remember when my wife and I started dating.....her brother would tell me about having to run people off his property looking for that stuff.

He had all these crazy stories!
