Customer Feedback

“Mark, Thank you for making this checklist available. I was unaware of many of the potential pitfalls of our project. Now we can place the contractors on an even “playing field”. Another plus is we now have a much better understanding of construction practices /materials and time lines.” – Larry Kanarek 8/2/12

Thanks for the sample. We ended up ordering the Bid Sheet last night and am impressed with how easily it breaks down many elements of the bid and build process.  This will save us a bundle of time and make for a professional presentation to potential builders.”    Jim 3/21/07


Why Buy my Bid Sheets?

Over the past 25+ years I have been involved with countless home construction projects. As a teenager I helped my father build several homes and various home additions. After obtaining a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering, I purchased an unfinished home. I used my previous home construction experience to frame, insulate, wire, and plumb the unfinished portions of the home. I repeated this process a couple of years later on another home. In subsequent years, and with much of my own personal sweat equity, I continued to do other home construction projects, including room additions and garage additions. In 2000 I tackled tearing down an existing home and building a new one in its place. I wrote about my experiences with this project, and in 2005 the DIY Network (a premium cable television network) filmed a show featuring this project. The show was part of a series and was titled “Be Your Own General Contractor – Vacation Homes”.

Throughout my years of home construction experience, and while pursuing a professional career in the high tech space, I gained a wealth of experience working with general contractors and sub-contractors. I learned how to work
with them, and most importantly how to hire them. From personal experience, hiring the wrong contractors is a disaster. Besides wasting a lot of time and money, you also find yourself in protracted arguments and difficult situations that no homeowner needs or wants.

To help homeowners learn from my experiences I created a series of bid sheets. Each bid sheet is comprised of several key sections. The first section is an extensive questionnaire for potential contractors to complete. It asks all the questions that should be asked, but most homeowners are unaware to ask. The second section consists of rough expected costs and work intervals associated with the particular project. The final section is a comprehensive summary of my tips and advice on what to watch out for when reviewing contractor responses to the questionnaire.

In addition, for major remodeling and construction bid sheets, I also provide a separate Cost Breakdown spreadsheet in Microsoft’s Excel format to allow homeowners to estimate and track their own actual home construction costs.

By utilizing my Bid Sheets you will save time, money and hassles, and most importantly get the home construction project completed the way you want.

If for any reason you are unhappy with one of my bid sheets, I will provide you with a 100% complete refund, no questions asked.
