What can I do myself if building with a builder?

14 years ago

Does anyone have any ideas around what I can do myself if I chose to build with a builder? I have heard that some people purchase their own appliances and get an appliance credit from the builder. Would it be possible, do you think, to supply my own kitchen cabinetry? I have designed a kitchen that I would love to have. I was originally going to put it into my current house, but we decided to build and it would fit just as good (with a few changes) in the house we are building. I don't think the builder will have what I want, so I was wondering if the builder could just give me the credit for the kitchen cabinets and I could have my own put in.

Also, what about other hardware like door handles and stuff?

Thanks for your help and feedback.
