You'll probably get better advice concerning solar over at Whirlpool's Green Tech Forum,
I think you get better bang for your buck with solar PV, than you do for solar thermal. So I'd be using your limited funds & limited roof area for solar PV panels.
If varies by location, but generally you can install up to 6.6kW of panels (with a 5kW inverter).
I'd say Metricon would just use a subcontractor, who could be of varying quality. I'd be leaving it until after your build, getting 3 quotes from highly regarded installers, before choosing the best.
I'm no expert, but you could speak to a couple of installers now, & see if they'd recommend the builders do some pre-install work (eg. conduit etc).
