I was reading another forum where a lady was talking about how hard it was to settle on a builder. She's consulted with 6 builders or so. It could be that her concerns are legit, but I know all these PB's here in Houston use the same subs a lot of the time. Unless she's consorting with real rapscallions (and from the builders listed, she's not) I think her fears are unfounded. I understand this is a big investment and it's prudent to be cautious, but I think it's overkill.
