    ...bottom line is, if you hire an independent contractor, and they don't possess a professional license from the state, they are breaking the law. If you hire an employee, and you don't withhold taxes or report their income to the federal government, you are breaking the law...

    Okay, I understand, and thanks for the article.
    Well make sure were doing the right thing when were there
    Thanks.

      Reading that would certainly make me want to hire a professional for any build somebody's going to live in.
      Certainly not someone like the guy in the article who says he's built a bunch of cabins before but then leaves you with a mess to tear down and start over.
      I've always liked this Red Addair quote:

      "If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur.

      There are some good builders out there with and without professional licensing etc.
      I know some of each.
      Some I trust and respect their work.
      Some I wouldn't trust to build me a doghouse!
      I know a guy who tried doing remodel and handyman work like my buddy does.
      He has failed miserably. Partially due to his attitude and partially to lack of building skills and knowledge.
      I've stayed at a local place where they rent small cabins.
      The owners husband built the cabins and she manages things cleans them etc.
      It's probably good retirement money for them.
      They're in a decent location and built things right and have really thought of everything in their setup.
      So I know it can be done!
