I am currently in the Mooresville, NC area and researching my future build.  I am trying to get a list of good subs for the project.  I am like most beginners... looking for any assistance in my dream home build.  I hate knowing that many people throw away thousands to GC's.  But the issue is trying not to get ripped off by subs in a Do-it-yourself project.  Any info on good subs out there?

I am just down the road in Concord, and am hoping to start my O-B home here next summer. Been in the research stage for a while, found plans, think we have found a lot too... I currently work for the associated general contractors chapter in Charlotte, so have a lot of access to contractors, but most are large and don't do much residential. I do have some contacts to use for small items, and know a local plumber that is a neighbor's father and has worked in the area for a long time, so hopefully can give me some good names.  My father is a residential contractor in WV, and may be able to help some, but not sure at this point.

I also thought of using "Angie's list" online contractor review site, that you have to pay to use, but it is cheap insurance IMO if you can find someone that is good and reasonable.

Let me know and we can compare notes and help each other out in any way?

Kenny

I am currently in Grover Beach, CA and also researching a list of subs for my project.  I hope to start in April of this year.  We have our lot, and permit for water and sewer.  I have built one O-B home, but I knew all the subs I worked with and had no problems. I will be at a great disadvantage. I too would like some help on subs for every phase, and  I will also share my info.                                                        

I have already had my lot cleared for construction and had topsoil, and compaction for building pad completed. I am using slab foundation with stain cement, much more cost effective, and less work with all that red clay there. This will be our third home.

Thomas, I am also looking to build in Mooresville. Try qualitysmith.com to locate subs in your area. I've never used them, but I am thinking about it.
