I joined the TheBlueBook.com a year ago. They have a nifty "online plans room" where you can post your drawings and specifications, then send invitations to bid to contractors. I was able to get several bids through that service.   


To join, I needed a fax number. The easiest way to do that for me was to use efax.com. They gave you a fax number, you get a 30-day free trial; then it is a for-fee service. For me it works well, as all faxes come in via email, so I have a permanent record. We have two fax machines in the house, but it's a pain to use them.  

And third, for the Portland Area, there is a firm called Blueprint Copies, and they print full-size plots for 99 cents each. I was paying two to three times that at FedEx/Kinko's before I found them. They found me from TheBlueBook.com. It appears they have expanded, and can ship your prints via FedEx if you ftp or email them the pdf's. I drive over to them locally, and they do terrific work, and have saved me hundreds of dollars on my prints so far.

The new design didn't use the as-built location for a wall... so taping out the floor showed that the bathroom couldn't be built as drawn. (Sigh). This picture is not related to the post, except that I'm waiting for updated drawings to reflect this ;).
