Does anyone have opinions on the various home package offerings from HPM, Argus, Honsador, and whoever else does them?

I have noticed the Argus packages are cheaper but provide less than HPM. Basically they are house shells. You don't get drywall, exterior doors, flooring (other than plywood subfloor). And of course, no electrical, plumbing or fixtures.

Honsador seems to have a pretty polished selection, but I haven't had a chance to get a price list.

I'm planning on doing owner/builder and going with post and pier. One question I have in particular is how to get the trusses up. I'm assuming you have to hire a crane or something. Trusses for a 3br 2ba house must weigh a few hundred pounds each.

HPM is pretty full service if youíre going frame. If you havenít set trusses get someone to do it for you - there are too many opportunities for disaster.
