Been in all phases of construction, owned framing/siding company for the last 15 years, time to take the next step. Have someone who owns her own lot and a set of plans and wants me to build it for her. I have no problem with how to start/complete the project. It's the paperwork issue that I'd like help with. I've always had fairly simple contracts for my smaller jobs, but am assuming the contract to build someone's home should be a bigger deal. Any software programs anyone would recommend? Or are there any free templates I could use and modify to suit my own circumstances. Am also thinking the contract should be reviewed by an attorney beforehand. Any ideas?

Much appreciated.

Maybe just go with an AIA contract if your not sure? (Maybe not the best, they're great at protecting architects and homeowners...) It wouldn't hurt to buy one of theirs though to at least study the language. It really wouldn't be a bad idea to hook up with an attorney who will make a contract for you - not review one you've made.
