Remodeling or building your own home in any form can turn into a

major project, ultimately costing you more time and money than you every

imagined. In “Screw It! I’ll Be My Own Contractor: Manage Your

Project From Permit To Final Inspection”, author Bill Trible draws

upon his many years of experience and expertise as a general contractor,

superintendent and project manager for custom homes and commercial

projects to present a step by step approach and tips to make any home

project successful. In this unstable market many homeowners are looking

for ways to spruce up their home and make it more attractive while they

are living there or looking for ways to make their home more competitive

when putting it on the market. Learning the top six mistakes

owner/builders make and how to avoid those pitfalls is just one set of

strategies featured. From Waivers, Notices, timelines, cost breakdown

and budgeting, this book will teach you how to hire an architect, build

a budget, track your costs, create and maintain your schedule, deal with

inspectors, get a permit and much more. Written by a 29 year veteran in

the field and as comprehensive as it is ‘user friendly’,

William Trimble’s “Screw It! I’ll Be My Own

Contractor” is ideal for anyone taking on their first remodeling or

building project, as well as those who have already undertaken a project

that hasn’t quite gone as planned.
