Cost to Build a House in 2010

I own a piece of property in some high desert mountains south of Socorro, NM.

I am thinking of building a retreat/vacation cabin.

I am having contractors tell me the cost should be between $100 and $115 per sq ft.

I think at this time in the economy I should be able to do it for $50 or $60.

Am I just dreaming or is it possible?

Good question! A question that is surely on the minds of many people.

I picked what I think is an attractive house for the area to run a cost to build in 2010 analysis.

Check out the approximate (rough) cost to build this house and the answer to your question on "Cost to Build a House in New Mexico"

Good luck,
