[quote]snake2985[/quote] Thank you for your response! I will take your advice on payment and get multiple bids on the AC work. I am also looking at facebook marketplace for painters, drywall and trimwork. Just having trouble deciphering who is legit and who is not. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

[quote]My man no GC is going to give you a list of his subs and anyone who used a GC will really not know who they were.[/quote] My man, I didn't ask any General Contractor's to give me their sub list. That's just stupid. I'm no moron. I asked other OWNER BUILDERS (people who acted as their ow...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote]Make sure you get them to pick up their shite and not make a mess either, might cost you a few bucks but it’s worth not having to do it yourself. That was the only thing I disliked about subbing my house. Clean up consumed me.[/quote] Thanks! I added a "clean job site" section to my gener...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote]Evasive Bamboo. Cost effective, quick growing...[/quote] Seconded. I'm not sure what exact species, but as long as you cut your grass regularly, it will keep a clean line on your side as the shoots won't be able to grow. But, on their side it will spread and become a wall between your pro...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote]We just finished subbing out our homes. While I do not have my sheets to share, I can give some references. Plaquemines Bank was the easiest and most helpful when trying to find financing for construction. Dave’s electric did my wiring. Mike Green did my plumbing.

[quote]While I live too far away to help with subs, I will offer a piece of advise. The wife and I were the general contractor on our house. Check with your lending institution about how many times you can draw on the money they are lending you. For me the number was 6, and an inspection was don...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote]You also need to know when each traded is needed in the build process, like a flow chart[/quote] Yeah. Thanks! Crazy thing. I bought 3 books on owner building and none of them have a flow chart/schedule of subs. Weird. I know someone here has done it before. I'm just hoping they a...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
Owner Builder help. - OneAyedJack on 9/7/19 at 1:33 pm
I see that quite a few guys here have GC'd their own home builds. My wife and I are having plans drawn up right now and have decided that we are going to contract it ourselves. I would've PM'd the guys I saw that did this already, but I can't find any kind of private/direct message options. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (6)
