general contractor vs. contract manager

What are the pros and cons of using a contract manager instead of a general contractor for major home remodel?

How much time do you have?

How much construction experience do you have?

How large is your supply of asprin and/or Tylenol?

Do you KNOW all of the subs?

When the inspector says "The XXX can't do it this way", -- are you ready for that??

If you have nothing better to do, and a CAST IRON STOMACH, then, by all means, BE your own general. Otherwise, you will be farther ahead to pay somebody the 6% or 8% that they are talking about and let them supply their own asprin!!
