2. How radical will your custom home be and how will this affect resale value? It's all well and good to design and build something that you like outside the "cookie-cutter" models, but you may find it difficult to sell something if it is too weird.
3. Could you achieve similar result by purchasing a fixer-upper and doing custom renovations? In some situations, this can be much more cost-effective than a ground-up project.
I have seen for a cookie cutter home the cost per square foot being in the $104 up to $140 per square foot. I have got a couple ideas on a custom build that could get up to $200 per square foot.
Urban Meyer: We're going to rotate them right away. We don't redshirt here at Ohio State. We're changing that up. We're going to have the culture out here that there's no redshirting. If you don't play here, it's because you're not good enough. It's not because we're holding you back. We're going to recruit the kind of player where we want them on the field right now. That's the approach we took at Florida, and it's the approach we're going to take here.
