We all long to live in a house perfectly suited to our tastes and designed to accommodate the flow of our lives. Getting to that point, however, is expensive and daunting. Building materials and labor are expensive, especially during times of high demand. And couples that barely survive hanging wallpaper together should think twice about the complex planning and decision-making required to build a home.

And we compare the costs to buy a lot and build a house with the current prices of golf homes in some of our favorite golf communities.
