    You should probably run these ideas by the contractors when you interview them, because everyone here is just going to think you are doing it yourself and fishing for free advice.
    Like it.
    Love it.
    Nail it.

    I will definitely discuss these ideas with the contractors, but I am looking for some free advice. What's wrong with that?

    Pan, you really are something, some times things are what they are, get off it and let it go, contribute if you wish try not to be so condescending and mabey you won't rub so many people the wrong way it really isn't that big of deal in the scope of anyone's lives.


    To the OP;

    where are you located, some of us might be in the area and could offer some great insight into who the right co is for your job. the jury is out on the 1 right way to do anything. There are so many details to consider, my recommendation is to # your questions specifically to get answers individually here, after all the only thing free is your time. By the way attitudes and elitism don't go over well here just look at Pan above. Hope you heed the advice it should prove benificial in your quest for knowledge, good luck

    Let the architect do the rest of the drawings and all your answers are on the plans.

    I agree with Andrew R.

    It is much easier for all the bidders to be bidding on the same construction details.

    Just to clarify, I did hire an architect, and he did develop floor plans. But, he didn't have anything really useful to say regarding these construction details.

    Nathar,
    The reason Tom posted the rules is because your question is a question. Any pro reading your post right now is wondering what the hell are you talking about. Architects that don't draw construction detail, either you got ripped off or your question is a hoax.

    The architect drew floor plans, why does that seem odd? Full construction plans would be a second step - but I wasn't overwhelmed with the architect, and thought I'd hear what some actual construction people had to say. As is the case in many trades, people can design all kinds of things on paper, but the real question is whether that design can be transferred to reality.
