There is so many ways you can do it.
I have experienced the home building process twice. My house and my parents house. We both had purchased land and still owed on it. My parents used a GC and I subbed everything out.
In both cases the bank that we had the construction loan with (differe...

A 5'x13'x.33' slab is not even a yard of concrete.
If he is already out there forming your sidewalks and will be there to finish the concrete he is fricking you hard.
If you are just pouring this pad then it is probably reasonable.
When I poured my sidewalks/driveway I got them to pour a 12'...

I sub contracted our build a few years ago and my parents got a GC to build thiers about a year before us, but we did the financing the same way.

Since you are getting a GC my question is.. Are you financing the construction with a construction loan or is the GC going to finance the construction and then you pay him when the house is finished?

Plumbing is going to be your biggest hurdle. Sure you have sewer lines because of the washer. I would dare to say that it is a 2" line. Installing a toilet will require a 4" stub out of the slab and at least a 3" line so you are going to have to bust up the slab. Also the shower/ tub drain will ...

I count 40 guys on the roster. Dylan Williams(legal issue) and Jesse Stallings (arm) are done for the year so that makes 38.
Doesn't the active roster have to be 35 before the season starts. So either 3 people are getting cut or recovering from injuries that are not going to see the field.
