Being your own GC?!
I have been a frequent reader of this site as we've worked through various renovations of our 1965 home (new kitchen, 2 new baths, 3 walls down, etc. etc.).
We are now looking to do a 700 sf addition to include a master bedroom & bath, as well as mudroom & new living space.
Our quotes have been between $150k-$230k. These are still higher than I'd like to spend given our neighborhood & future resale (although if we do this, we'll be here for 20 years!!!).
I've been very, very involved in all of our other projects and wondering if it makes sense to get some quotes for each piece of this project - excavation, HVAC, electrical, framing, roofing and so on - to see if it's possible to act as my own GC.
Anyone have experience acting as their own GC for such a project? How'd it go? Were the savings worthwhile?
Many thanks for your opinions!
