So here is the scoop... In Oregon I saw our (my family and I) dream home. It was nothing massive but considerably larger than were we live now. Then I started crunching numbers and it seems we could afford to buy it out there... however there is no basement. I don't know if I could ever live without a basement Anyway we would like to see if we can afford to build it here with a basement but the builder out there is also local and said they won't bring the plans here to build it because the developments are so specific. I have a generlized copy of the plans but without the dimiensions. The only thing I know is the total square footage. I am going to see if I can get a copy of the blue prints somehow. After that is were I need help. Anyone know some home builders that are pretty affordable that can take the plans and build it? The only big catch I think is that we want to stay in Hugo. There are some general lots for sale that anyone can buy to build on. The dilema is will a builder buy the lot to build the house on for you so that you are not making any payments on anything until the house is completed and closed on???
