Price difference between GC yourself or paying someone else

15 years ago

My DH and I plan to GC our own home build starting this spring.

For those that got bids from GCs before deciding to GC yourself, would you, please, share how much you saved in building costs by doing it yourself?

I know there's a lot more involved in GC-ing (like time, stress, etc.) compared to hiring a GC but I'm interested in knowing about the cost difference - not actual numbers because that's too personal and differs based on size of home and selections. A percentage of savings would be great.

Also, how much of the labor did you do yourselves or hire out to others?

Thanks in advance to anyone willing to share information.
