You can build a nicely appionted home for around $200-$250 per foot on a level lot with our company. We also provide a warranty and service agreement you won't get elsewhere. Keep in mind you need to budget for city fees, school fees, permits ect. Uncle Sam gets his piece. Permits and fees are much lower for a major remodel than a ground up project.
We are experienced builders serving Santa Barbara for 11 years. Consults are free.
I don't think you can get much cheaper than $200/sqft these days within the Santa Barbara area. Most "normal construction" is in the $300-$450/ sq ft. and as Daniel said, you can go up to $700 and even $1000 per sqft here depending on your needs/choices.
Let me know if I can be of further help.

Granite or laminate counters?
Sub Zero or Wal-Mart refrigerator?
Tile or vinyl floor?
Clay tile or comp shingle roof?
Casement, single hung or sliding windows?
That's a great question. Like most areas, construciton costs are going to vary dramatically depending on the service provider and teh level of quality and finish. That said, as a broad range you'll be looking at $250/sf on the low end, all the way up to $600-700k/sf on the higher end in Montecito for the luxury estates. Most "affordable" cosntruction with reasonable quality will be in the $300-400/SF range.
I hope that helps Linda. Are you considering remodeling your home, or are you considering building a custom home? I'd be happy to assist you, as well as put you in touch with some local contractors with good reputations for quality and a range of prices.
Have a good afternoon.
