Hi - I am an owner of land in WI and expect to soon contract with a GC to build a custom home. Any advice particular to our situation in Vilas County WI would be appreciated. Thanks.
One of the easiest issues to pop up on a construction job is to use informal or sloppy change order processes. Requiring that all change orders be in writing and signed will help make sure that you're aware of all changes on the project, and it will avoid disputes over whether extras were approved and what should be paid for those extras.
