Also, you might want to consider purchasing a home that is already built, as the cost of materials and labor has gone up significantly recently, and there are lots of great buys out there on resale homes. I would only recommend building if you cannot find a home that fits your needs, but there are so many in Austin that is typically not the case.
Nevertheless, feel free to contact me if you would like some further assistance and I will do all I can to help!

You are asking an very important and specific question with little information to use to arrive at the answer. Barbara is right, you need specific plans with every detail of the construction and finish out bid by a builder. I jut helped a friend/client through this process with a goal of keeping the house below $150 sq/ft and it bid out at over $300 sq/ft wit all the bells and whistles they added. It was on a hillside too and the slab alone was double what they estimated.
If youd like representation during this, no cost to you- I charge the builders, just give me a call or email via the link here.
I dont expect under 175/sft as an extremely general idea.
But to relate, its similar to asking how much is a 4 door car?
I'd love to help you with your mortgage though. :)
