re: Sorry for another Disney related thread - SippyCup
Two years ago we did MK on Oct 31 and stayed 5 additional park days. We got to see the Halloween decorations and party on the 31st and then the christmas lights on our last day in MK. The F&W fest was also a bonus. We almost always stay at Board walk Villas with an occasional stay at Beach Club. ...

re: On average, what is a residential General Contactors fee/percent? - SippyCup
I'm trying to find my contract to see. If I recall the itemized bid had the subs, insurance, overhead, etc. included line by line and then the builders fee at the very bottom, which I know came out to 8%. I'm also trying to get a copy of my brothers to see the difference. I have a feeling none o...

[quote]I believe people should do hard bids only with solid agreements with builders[/quote] This is basically what he is doing. Cost-plus a fix fee, but that fixed fee is based off an initial percentage. It wont change if he goes above or under his allowances. [quote]So one instance, counters...

Just a bid. Cost to build came in around $98 s/f and then on top of that the GC was going to make another 45k at 17%. Being that we paid 8% on a similar build a few years ago I thought it was extremely high....

re: On average, what is a residential General Contactors fee/percent? - SippyCup
Custom home, around 2800s/f, St Tammany, he is not a PIA. Basically sat down with the builder gave him the plans, answered a few questions and that was all. Like I said, I know this is similar to asking "how much it costs to build a house" but I have no idea if 17% is ridiculous or in a normal ra...

On average, what is a residential General Contactors fee/percent? - SippyCup

He is doing cost plus but either way, all GC have a percentage built in. Ours was 8%, but he was j...
