dried in houses (pilings, deck, exterior walls with hardiplank siding, windows & roof) are starting around $65 per sq foot

I've seen builders advertise turnkey conventional construction ("stick-built" instead of pre-fab) starting at $115 per foot

those prices are for Bolivar, other coastal areas may be different.

Guys thanks for the information. Interesting anyone have any experience with the prefab? Sounds like it is the foundation and external shell? Stronger or weaker than a conventional building or no measureable difference?

I've toured one of the homes built by Coastal Components - AKA the "bird houses" near Gilchrist.

the company says they are stronger than conventional because of the controlled assembly area, blah, blah, blah.

the house I toured was nice - the owner was very pleased with it. I know at least 1 other person that has one and so far, I think she's pleased with it also.

I think the pre-fabs are very expensive. each "unit" costs about $100K - I think each unit was 500-600 sq ft. you can have a house built with 1, 2 or 3 units. That price is for a completed house on concrete pilings, I believe most appliances are included as well.

I think Coastal Components builds only on the peninsula, but you'd have to confirm that with them.

I believe they also do "shells" for a discounted price.

We have been looking to build a new house in crystal beach also. I have been down three times in last couple months looking for lots to build a new house. The price for new construction with 12x12 pilings 20' elevation has been $ 140 - $155 sqft. New construction is down up in east texas and material cost have come down quiet a bit. Seems like they are sill up down at coast. I am still looking for a 2nd- 3rd row lot in good neighborhood with water view. Ronnie

Monkeyman1 does have one of the best lots i have looked at in crystal beach for the money. I am holding out for a lot a little closer to beach front. His lot is in a very good subdivision with the most new construction.Nice quiet very well kept. Ronnie
