     As general contractor on your project, you have the opportunity to create savings by planning the timing on things that could drive up your costs. Some examples are:

• Time it to heat your place with your own furnace vs. temporary heat when you build.

     The Complete Guide to Contracting Your Home says: “If you get your heating system approved early, normally by passing a quick test, you can turn it on before the house is finished. This will also save you some money when other builders may have gone out and rented a space heater.”

• If you need a concrete pumper to pour your floors, walks, drives, foundations, or footers, get the cement delivered while your pumper is setting up and only pay the minimum charge for concrete pumping. Owner-builder John N. managed to keep the $150 an hour pumper cost to the minimum charge of $300 this way.

• Same thing with crane charges, usually over $150 an hour. Make sure the materials are ready and the needed lifting is clear-cut before the clock starts ticking.

     Timing makes all the difference on land purchase, construction, appraisals for resale, and resale itself.
