I would not rule out pre-fab METAL buildings. I built my 24×30 in 2003 for roughly:
  • $4500 for the slab
  • <$7,000 for the building (kit parts)
  • ~$500—Wired it myself
  • $50 for professional electrician to do final hookup and sign-off

Total roughly $13,000 for 720sqft of space or just $18/sqft. Don’t know what restrictions you have, so things nay vary for you. I am rural, between Austin and San Antonio and have no building restrictions in my county.

10-4 on raising the value of your property taxes.
