You Should Always Choose Your Interior Finishes before You Start
Building - I really can't say this enough and I won't stop saying
it, until everyone gets the message. The more stuff that you can get
into the original construction contract with out any allowances, the
better off you're going to be.
Interior Designers Can Create Big Problems for Home Builders - I was
working on a track of homes one time and we were building the model
homes. The homes were completely framed, with all of the electrical,
plumbing and heating systems in place, when the interior designer came
to the job and started changing things.
Allowance Problems in New Home Construction -
There are plenty of problems that a homeowner will face while building a

Stick to Your Construction Budget – Home Construction Ideas - I

nightmare if you don't have a basic understanding of the process.

difference between a good general contractor and a poor one.
