Plan to play contractor?

Written By: Kathy Price-Robinson - May• 27•07

If so, check out this story, “So you want to be your own contractor,” in this weekend’s San Francisco Chronicle. The subhead is: “Be super-prepared and endlessly patient, say homeowners who’ve taken on the job.”

I like this idea in the story: to gain building experience by volunteering for Habitat for Humanity. Also from the article:

A general contractor’s tasks generally include:

• hiring and scheduling subcontractors
• ordering materials
• obtaining permits
• ensuring that everything is installed according to code.

Are you super-prepared and endlessly patient? Is this a job you would enjoy?
