Question: I want to have an addition designed and built by a contractor. I would like to install the trim and do the paint and stain myself. Do you ever take on a project like this where the owner is responsible for parts of the work?
Answer: We have done projects where the homeowner has done part of the work. Some people are happy that they did the work themselves and with the money they have saved. Others find it is much more difficult than they thought it would be and quite a bit more time consuming. If you want to do the work be realistic about the time and amount of labor that is involved and be sure you will be satisfied with the results you produce.
