...My question is concerning the fact that he uses primo Marvin windows.
I'm trying to cut costs where I can safely and use factory floor defect windows at
100 buck or less.
I don't want to cut costs and end up with moldy walls.
I'm also considering searching out an amish builder...
but are there a lot of concerns with that?
I need a confidence booster in my next steps forward!
I love and appreciate all you
wonderful Permies! Thank you <3

Mold in your walls shouldn't be a huge concern if you build a water tight skin and avoid large and lengthy internal temperature/humidity swings once you move in. A prior response suggested you consider your first build as a learning opportunity with the idea of selling it once completed.
With due respect to the person posting that thought, it just doesn't make sense to make less than ideal construction decisions and perhaps do some substandard work (because your learning, right?) and then pass it on to someone else.
