It's not balloon framing.  The house is built in a factory in standard sized sections, and then assembled onsite.  Assembly takes about a week (as opposed to the 16 weeks we were advised for a normal brick or block build).

I think you should do the bathroom yourself. 

I am doing it myself.  Who do you think gutted it, did the electrical & plumbing?  I just didn't want to finish it, as I have other things I'd rather be doing, like building my boat.

But for 5 grand, I have continued working on it.  It's just gonna take a lot longer than a week.

Hell, I had one guy quote me over a grand, cash, for just the drywall.  That's robbery.

Yes, it is robbery, I agree.  The money these people earn is almost enough to get me to train as a plumber.
