Hi Fellow Builders,

I am a 58 yr. old woman. I have a piece of property I have had for 26 years. I have been involved with homebuilding in the past. No doing the work, but being the Owner/Builder. My problem is now I live in a new state (New Mexico) and I am not familiar with any of the Contractors and their background in this state. It's been soo long since I was involved in building I'm not even sure what the cost per foot to build is anymore? At this time I'm looking at a S.I.P.'s home with other money saving fratures. How can I find out the cost to build per square foot in this Southwest part of the Southwest? I'm afarid of being taken advantage of.
