Question DetailsAsked on 12/11/2014

I want to build a home soon and need to have some idea how much home I can build for ~ $140K cash in western KY.

I need 4 BR, 2 story, no garage, no basement. Something basic and bare bones, no complicated roof lines or façade. An open floor plan is a must but I don't mind leaving some areas unfinished and finishing up myself to save some money. Am I crazy in thinking I can possibly build a basic 3000 sf saltbox or do I need to scale back closer to 2000 sf? I do no want to borrow a penny from the bank. It took me years to pay off financial aid loans from college and a previous mortgage. I will not go that route again. I have saved up for years and I now want to build a comfortable house for myself, my elderly mother and my teenaged kids and live basically debt free. Thanks for any advice/tips you might offer RE: my building options on my budget!! Oh, and I do already own the land where my new home will be located :)
