I have a question about paying our builder. When he drew up the paperwork outlining the estimate for the house he put he would be charging 10 percent of the cost of labor and materials as his cut. My husband is an electrician and he had him go ahead and bid out the electrical because he was not sure if he would have time to wire the house himself. It bid out to 15000 so we decided to go ahead and let my husband do the work to save that money. My husband has done all the legwork of tracking down materials and buying it and all the labor himself. The builder has just informed us that he still gets 10 percent cut of the materials my husband is purchasing for electrical. Is this right? Should we be paying him a cut for something we are doing?
