Your area is too small to have a separate building cost index entry - and the generally large lots in your area make it hard to separte land from house cost. But from builder information in the general area, it appears a normal smallish ranch like you are talking about runs about $125,000-150,000 - about what the average existing older house in your area goes for including the land.

If you are using a realtor (to buy land to build on) he/she should be able to give you better information. You could also call local contractors in the Builder-Homes category in Search the List and ask them to send you their brochure and any info sheet they have on typcial building costs.

And of course, once you get an Architect on board and work up a conceptual plan, he/she should be able to give you a rough preliminary cost estimate.

Be careful in looking at costs to be sure whether they are "property" costs including the house and septic and well and such, or the house only - big different, by probably at leat $10-20K and possibly more.
