Ho hum, not much new to report… except that work is finally beginning on our house!
I had just about given up on ever hearing back from Mike. I last spoke to him in January, I think, when he gave me an estimate to rewire the house. Then I asked him to coordinate the entire renovation, and I’ve been waiting for a quote ever since. I was collecting numbers for other contractors and was planning to call them this week.
But then, yesterday morning at 6:30 AM, Mike calls, and he sends Mark the carpenter by, and the next thing I know there’s a big load of lumber and a table saw in our house.
I think he’s sending a crew to finish the demolition today. I did most of the gutting myself back in October, but I didn’t touch the ceilings and there’s lots of little things that I didn’t take care of.
Mike may be disorganized, but he’s a friend and I know he won’t try to screw me or do a half-assed job. At least I think he won’t. Please?
And now I have to make a decision about all those windows. We have 15 windows (damn that’s a lot) on the lower floor of our house, all of which were flooded, and I have to decide whether to refurbish or replace…
