About the Author
As a consultant, Herschel 'Gus' Nance has written several successful contract proposals for industry. His writing of Contracting To Build Your Home came as a result of his personal experiences which reflected a vital need for analysis, documentation, and publication. After a builder defaulted on the contract for Gus' own 5000 square foot residence, he discharged the contractor and assumed personal responsibility for completion of the last seventy-five percent of the construction work, correcting faulty work of the errant builder in the process.
