Cost to build (guestimate/average)
I know this question is a bit broad and very vague but those that build or have built a home what is cost for following.
5k sq ft home (lower high end) cost per sq ft (not including land)

where are you located. I find this to be the biggest issue, also what style of house? The range can be quite drastic. Where we build even, very high end homes can range from $400-$1,500+ per square foot.
More affordable homes around here can come in at $200-$300.
$300-$400 can give you a very nice home with lots of custom stuff.
Funny thing is I believe the national average is around $110 per square foot with the national average size being 1,800

Nice.... I wish we could build that inexpensively here. It's a challenge to reach $200 here. Unfortunately everything is more expensive, insurance, labor rates are higher cause cost of living is higher. The list goes on and on.
Post up some pics of the house you're planning to build.
The link you sent would easily be double what you were quoted where I am.

Rex, my buddy just built off Perkins in that new neighborhood just east of Perkins Rowe, I can't remember the name of it. His place is pretty high end and he told me his was a little over $200 sq ft. with lot. So yes $200 or so for custom should be alright but don't let him dick you over on finishes. At $200 you should have nice shit.
If you need any mortgage help, let me know. He is well established in BR and has several brokers working for him. Dude is a whiz, has serviced some seriously high end clients in BR.
