So houses sell for as low as $104/ft and you are considering building at $200/ft? Doesn't sound like a good idea, especially when you factor in the realities of staying in the initial bid and budget. Even if your custom ideas are radically different and marketable
, you are severely limiting your ability to sell the house.
