Builders percentage question
Just got a bid back from the builder we want to use. He has worked with our architect LOTS, plus he has excellent taste himself and a good eye. He is not going to be the cheapest which is fine with us. . . just want reasonable.
The builders fee was 10 percent of the cost of the build. What is an appropriate range? Does the percentage go down as the price goes up? It sounded like a bunch of money to my husband for 10 months (estimated time frame) of work . . . considering he has a couple of other things going on as well.
I do have the utmost confidence in him after talking to him about various things and him giving me the precise right (GardenWeb checked!) answer.
