Anyone have any comments or experiences to share on steel homes? I am looking at

as my first home, built in Kansas, on a basement (maybe ICF). I am only in the preliminary stages, so any advice or experience would be helpful.

With all the bells and whistles, the site quotes just under $50,000 for a 2500 square foot home. With this package, labor, land, and basement, and a real minimalist interior, I was hoping to pay less than $150,000 total. I don't need kitchen cabinets and only essentials in bathroom, and also a garage from the same company probably, but I do need 75% of the house to be finished. So, I just really need the essentials (water heater, 2 toilets, 1 shower, HVAC, air circulation) Is this price goal realistic? Is steel a good choice right now?

I am also investigating building with Kodiak, SIP, and Basment.

Scheduled to go their seminar on March 8th.

Have you been able to find anything out yet?

We are at the beginning stages of researching on building a home. We came across the Kodiak Steel homes. There is so much that I like about them. But I am wanting to talk to people that actually had one built and lived in a Kodiak Steel home. We were also going to put it on a basement. What issues were you having and did you go ahead with the basement? Any and all information would be greatly appreciated!
