Itemizing ALL the costs?
General speaking do the estimates for "cost-to-build" that the house-plan stores online post for each plan include LABOR, subcontracting, or such, or the estimates are only for materials? The estimates seem very expensive if they are only for materials. I am not handy and definitely need a general contractor to do everything for me, but I don't think materials cost that much..
so.. what are the cost included in the estimates on those online plans?
Would you mind giving me a ballpark of percentage or cost for custom building a home by hiring a builder/GC, such as:
permits for whatever needed
whatever utilities hook-ups
subcontractors (when I read about a GC gets 10-20% of the entire cost. Does this 10-20% shared by sub-contractors and their employees)
