Owner-Builders: Pitfalls and Savings
I may act as GC on my build. I've read Carl Heldman, Amy Johnston, Tim Carter, and many others, but I would like to hear from the voice of experience: owner-builders with unrelated jobs who managed to complete the project.
How much did you save? How did you calculate the savings? Did you compare final costs to builder quotes?
How did you save? Internet purchases? Other bargains?
Most importantly: What do you know now, that you wish you knew at the start of the project?
Also, when did you start and finish your build?
