Have any of you guys built one? I hear if you do it right you can have a nice place for $50-60 a square ft.

What should you look for in a contractor? What questions should you ask?

I guess some clarification is needed; are you talking about metal stud construction?

I'm a GC for a commercial construction company and that's all carpenters that work for us anymore use is metal studs and not wood.

Commercial yes, but most residentials are still wood. Over in Romania where my wife is from, they use all concrete.

I didn't know you were a GC. I am a GC too, I own my own company.

Check to make sure they are licensed. Check also references and look at actual jobs they have done. NEVER give all money before job is done. Give progress payments.

I 100% agree with this, progress payments for work done and NOT material stored. I've seen it a lot where a weak contract allows for payments on stored material and then people get stuck with a 70% complete project.

As for building with steel like in link you provided, nothing wrong with it really. Might be a bit more expensive on materials side but erection should (in theory) even things out as there won't be as much time spent on labor. You may have to have a third party inspector look at it though as most building inspectors won't even look at steel erection, but that's something you can find out talking to your local permitting office.

Very nice! Anything in particular you specialize in?

I get the "hell" projects for the company I work for building movie theaters across the country. Terrible site conditions, foundation work in sub zero temps, near impossible deadlines... I somehow inherit all those projects :banghead:

Mostly what I do is real estate work, but can do anything residential. HUD requirements and getting home lender requirements done is what I mostly do. I have one right now where I am replacing a roof, painting fascia and replacing a few dry rot areas. I do bigger jobs, but the small ones are huge profits and less headaches.
