Default G.J. Gardner or Tilson Homes??

Just wondered if any of you had any experience with G.J. Gardner or Tilson homes. We're shopping around to have a smallish home built in the Boerne/Comfort area, and the recent increase in building and material prices are discouraging. Prices are all over the map, too. One builder says he can do ours for $280K, the next says not a penny less than $350K. These two have been recommended, as they are corporate builders that can work more cost-efficiently. They both build everything from basic low-end to huge homes over $1 million. Anybody? Thanks.

No personal experience but I have heard from friends that used Tilson that they will kill you on any change orders. Make sure you have all your specs listed out and accounted for.
