Observations from a Newbie . . . About a Self-Destructive Industry 41 Replies

I thought I'd throw this out there for general discussion and, perhaps, to invoke a bit of introspection among builders.

I'm a reasonably educated guy--a retired Air Force officer with a professional post-grad degree--and have dealt with a variety of executives across a large array of industries.My wife and I at long last find ourselves in the position where we can seriously…Continue

Builder's Risk (course of construction) AND liability insurance? 5 Replies

I've been shopping around for builder's risk insurance and already have some quotes (Zurich).  Our current homeowner insurance agent said we also need liability insurance, even if our general contractor carries it.  He said anyone injured on our property during construction could sue us without it.  I always thought it was just the general contractor who needs to carry this... anyone else run into needing liability insurance?  We live in California if that makes a difference (where everything…Continue
