    160k/520 sf is 307… who’s going to take the bait with lot, utilities, transport, crane lift, yada-yada still to go?. A competent builder could build that for $200/ft onsite.

    Preston, I think it’s absolutely FAB! I wish it were mine…but yeah, a little pricey when you have to consider the cost to move/transport it! Still love it!
