Acting as your own General Contractor
In 16 years, I have only seen one client (out of several hundred) hire a general contractor for their Log Home Construction. When you act as your own General Contractor it doesn't mean that you are at the job site everyday with a tool belt on. It simply means that you are organizing the subcontractors. The savings by acting as your own General Contractor are substantial. I recently was talking with a colleauge about her addition and garage construction. She asked for my help in looking over the estimates from the General Contractor. I was astounded when I saw a fee of contracting fee of 20%. The estimates totalled out at $277,000. The 20% contracting fee was assessed to that number. An additional $54,000.00!
