Who is normally responsible for paying for temporary power during the construction of a new home, the contractor or the owner?

Ultimately, the owner. Most contractors will include the cost of the temp power in their charges.

It depends. A basic "hands off" contract you point out the location of the lot, give the builder the plans, write the checks, and come back 6-12 months later with the moving truck.

The house is completed along with the windows being cleaned and the sod down.

The other extreme is that YOU are the contractor and do or hire out to difference people the excevating, the foundations, the framing, etc.

In the first case the contractor would responsible. You in the 2nd case.

It depends on what kind of arrangement that you have with the contractor.
