Got plans; find a builder...will this be fun?
Our architect is finishing up the plans for
our dream house to be built on a rural wooded
plot in Maryland. She'll have suggestions and
advice for me on how to select a builder, but
I figure it won't hurt to solicit some comment here.
I want a fixed-price contract -- I know that much,
but that's about all, at this point. In the
beginning I had hoped to find an architect who
would handle everything for a percentage of the
total project size, but I decided to work with local
talent instead. So I've discovered I had to deal with
a surveyor on my own, and with county government...
How much more of this?...
