Default Home/Shop Combo advice or ideas?

I plan on building a home / shop combination place as soon as I find a good plot of land in the DFW area. But I would love some ideas from anyone here that has done this or have seen some......???

I am open to all ideas right now but heres my general thoughts. I want the Home to be at least 1200 sf. and shop around 2500 to 3000 sf....I am trying to do all cash with no loans/ mortgage and have no idea what this might cost???????

That's not set in stone but it's a starting point.....
and thought, ideas, pictures??????

After you have your land, the house will cost you from $80 to $120-up per foot depending on how fancey you want it. The shop will cost you 15k to 100k depending agian. This is a VERY open ended question.

Well it's good that your going to pay for it all up front as it will be almost imposiable to get a loan on it. Also be aware that it will also be hard to sell it as the new purchaser will also have a hard time getting a loan for it. Mine a little larger than your planing and I really didn't plan on living in it when I started out, but none the less here we are!
