Two stage remodel-- two contractors, bad idea?
We are in the process doing a large addition which will include a new kitchen and family room. A designer has suggested that we have one builder do all of the major construction/ framing etc. and then essentially hand off the project to another contractor who will install all of the cabinets, fixtures, countertops, etc. Has anyone ever worked on a project in this manner before? It seems that it could save some money, however I am concerned about accountability for the project for timing, if things go wrong, etc. thanks.
