Well, thanks, Conde Construction, but these are high-end people in major metropolitan areas where I can't live (way too polluted). Is Houzz just for the 1 percenters and hedge fund managers? It certainly seems that way. Chris Corsen of Maine (featured in a couple of recent issues of the Journal of Light Construction) built a passive house for $135/sq. foot. I could probably afford more than that, but not a whole lot more, especially since I have to buy the land, too.

I feel as if tjml55 and I are twins. Thank you everyone for making me feel better about asking for other bids (something DH has been asking me to do for two months). I'm having extensive work (kit/dr/bath/addition) done, I like the contractor (we're using the architect he works with), but his bid is half again as much as my budget. Which he knew. Seems like I'm making all the concessions to get the cost down. And why can't I get the estimates for HVAC, cabinets and countertops? They go straight to the contractor. I'm paying for this! How much padding is my contractor doing, anyway? I'm losing sleep at night over this. I'm also looking for other bids. Wish me luck.
