I’m preparing to build my own house. Or rather, have it built. Or perhaps, somewhere in between. I am capable of doing some parts myself, and am comfortable dealing with suppliers, banks, and contractors.
However, I would feel a lot happier with someone else looking over my shoulder to help coordinate the process. Am I likely to be able to find some one to fill this role? I’m not looking for some one to take responsibility: I’ll accept my own errors and ommisions. I just need an honest broker for advice.
Would this person typically expect a percentage, a flat fee, or work for an hourly rate? How should I look for someone? I think this sounds like Ubuildit, but I don’t think they operate in Canada.
If it sounds like I’m just going to get in over my head, pile on. But I’d appreciate any advice anyone can give. I’m not totally naive, but so far all my experience has been repair and renovation for family, friends, and a couple rental properties I own.
