OK, so this is not Disney related, however, if you stretch, it could be. I am looking for ways to save money to pay for trips to Disney so everything I do is related to Disney. I am being relocated to the Birmingham area and I am currently looking for areas to move to and houses for sale. I know that generally, having a home custom built is more expensive, but I wonder if it would really be more expensive if I built it exactly like I wanted and did not pay for extras that I do not want. Does anyone have an idea how building a custom home works and about how much it would be for a 2,000-2,500 sq ft home with a basement?
