But both of us are very easy going and laid back and willing to compromise for the budget and aesthetics when we need to. Plus we’re doing it ourselves so we have no general contractor to screw it up for us. If you can get along, and he doesn’t care, or you can always be right, then you’re probably good to go! hehe. Otherwise, what I think the killer can be are the disagreements about what should be/could be. ;-) good luck! Reply Sarah 2 April, 2014 at 8:22 am (6 years ago) I agree about the disagreements! We watched the HGTV show “House of Bryan” where this guy who is a contractor builds his dream home, and then a dream cabin, and it shows him and his wife working together. Most of the time I was yelling at the TV at his wife, lol! That’s also great that you guys are able to act as the general contractor. There’s a company around here called UBuildIt – sounds kind of cheesy, but it’s meant to keep you as the general contractor and they act as sort of a consultant. Can’t wait to see pictures and hear more about your guys’ place as it continues to come together! Reply Leave a reply Click here to cancel reply.
