The Owner-Builder Book, Chapter 7, page 87, has "Suggestions for Finding Subs".
Where we will be building*, some of those suggestions will be impossible for us…
3. Attend home and garden shows where you may meet subs...
No such thing anywhere nearby.
6. Join the local Home Builders Association...
That is almost 70 miles away, and that town is high-end, very expensive, and definitely not the type of home we want.
7. Seek out the subs who did work on "Parade of Homes"...
No such thing anywhere near by.
I will need to make sure and ask the subs about any additional charges for mileage and/or driving time.
UPDATE: I talked to Mark and he suggested putting the subs up at the local motel that is only 9 miles from my build site. Duh, slaps self, what a great idea!
