I get asked all the time about general contracting as a home owner. I am not currently a general contractor by trait, matter of fact I’m far from it. I also do not come from a construction background either. So general contracting for my last 3 houses was a learning experience. This blog is about understanding the building process for people not familar with construction. General contracting of your own house is very rewarding but can be very frustrating at times. But in the end if you stick to a process and budget you can save a tremendous amount of money.
