Many people think about, dream about, and talk about being a general contractor and building their own home. If you have the desire and are willing to put forth the effort, you can realize your dreams and ambitions. A General Contractor is a project manager. If you can manage projects, schedule activities, and work with people, you can build your dream home.

General Contracting - A Guide to Home Construction, removes the mystique of General Contracting and gives a step by step, easy to understand, guide on how to plan, schedule, manage, and construct a new home.

You do not have to be intimidated by the thought of building a home. Being a General Contractor can be rewarding both personally and financially. It was for me and it can be for you. You can be a "Jack of all Trades" or a person who just loves challenging and rewarding projects. If you want to save money and experience the pride of building your own home, then General Contracting - A Guide to Home Construction is the right book for you!
