I figure with an MBA and previous management experience, I should be able to ride herd on a few subs. He just called me on the phone with a price of $125,000 for most of the job, so maybe I'll be able to afford to put carpet down on the floors after construction is complete.

We got the final quote in for the addition: $148,000. Way out of our price range. I tried negotiating with him, but my skills are rusty. So, I ended up pulling things off the project list, leaving him with just the structural work (basically building the shell). I would hire the sub-contrators. He went back to his office and he's reworking the numbers.
