Not the case, most people that build on their own will use the cheaper of the options they have. They end up with a cheaper house in the end. Also most builders will get a discount an individual will never come close to getting.
Yep. I knew the frame crew, brick crew, electrician I wanted to use, the rest I just priced out from contractors subs. If your doing heated floors, schluter systems, air/water purifiers, those guys save you a ton.
FWIW even getting the builders discount and kickback from appliance dealer, ajmadison.com was still cheaper apples to apples (All Bosch). Start pricing your appl now
Also have to see if hood has a builders guild, which if so, eliminates you from self contracting all together
