This new construction planning is so time consuming when you don't pick a floor plan and designer and all of that expensive route stuff.
Especially when lots of homeowners don't get what they pay for with a general contractor anyway. Notice how the DIY and HGTV networks are moving into the kind of shows where the master expert comes in and fixes what jack leg general did wrong? They're called reality shows for a reason.

Not saying they are all bad: there are gobs of awesome contractors building and renovating our world. But Dr. Solar costs more (usually 1.5x more) than jack-leg Joe Solar Expresso. Doing your homework before and during the project can make a huge difference in its success. Especially when you pick the lowballer.
