    I can't imagine a general allowing himself to get $100,000 down on a residential job.

    I had a couple of projects where the landscape, irrigation and low voltage lighting alone was $1mil. We were billing out progress payments in increments of $75K to $100K, sometimes larger. On the larger projects that's just how the money flows.
