What kind of builder experience should you expect?

Is your builder a great person, a business, or all corporate?

I just wanted to point out some different types of builders; the singular man or woman, the small businesses, and the corporate builders. Though all may deliver a good product, and maybe this is an oversimplification, there can be big differences differences.
