     You could trade almost anything imaginable to subs and some vendors in lieu of cash. You could even loan something you own, like a tool to someone in trade for something you need. Tradesmen are famous for doing this between themselves. One tradesman, Ron Thorgersen, offered O-B Joanie L. granite countertop for the price of Formica. He got the granite because he had done some trade work with the countertop man. Meanwhile Joanie, an attorney, in turn did legal work for Ron to pay much of the cost of framing, excavation and foundation for her project.

     Mike C. told me, “I am doing some trade labor, I have a lot of skills, but I am going to manage my electrician’s project for him. My wife also has management, money and accounting skills.

     O-B Sharmisa M. says that her husband is an electrician: “We’ve already started doing trades, one is to a carpenter, where we have $500 credit built up already. This way we’ll be able to get our trades accomplished in not too long a time after we build.”

     If you have something to trade, you could talk to all your subs and vendors, and ask them if you can trade with them. Make it a standard question in your sub and vendor interviews. You could turn up a bargain before you even ask for bids.
