How do you think houses are built already? Lmao you don’t get a flat sum to build a house you get an estimate and you don’t get the final bill until it’s finished and hours are accounted for.
I’d say a majority of houses are built this way unless they’re cheap rowhomes, but even then hours are counted in building contracts almost always.[/quote]
The flat sum wasn’t meant in that context. It was meant in the context that they don’t get paid a weekly wage, or whatever. They get paid for finishing a job on time, etc. A family wouldn’t hire a builder like an employee - it’s completely different.
A firm doesn’t hire a builder, they pay a building company to get a job done. It would be silly for the vast majority of business’ (non-building companies), I’m not willing to say all, to have dedicated builders on hand.
