Wow! What a treasure of information. Now I have to learn how to print a whole thread at once.

Two more things to add.

1. Absolutely no exposed wood. That means Vinyl (or other non wood) windows and vinyl soffit etc. Try to make the outside maintenance free.

2. Ask them to hand hammer the sub floor. Over 90% of floor squeeks are because the guy with a power nailer thinks he can swing the nailer in a continuous moving motion and hit the supporting boards while trying to beat his best time.
