A, B, and C Lists

Having no luck with B's and C's, we have now started calling the A list contractors in town. I now strongly believe that the people we originally spoke to were afraid of the magnitude of work that needs to be done in, on, and around the house. The difference is also quite obvious when talking to them about stages of work and sources of income. So, hopefully, when the architectural drawings are done, we will be able to contract one of them as a GC (general contractor). We picked the roofer, and the GC I personally like the best works exclusively with him. That makes me feel good. That and the fact he comes highly recommended both from people he worked with and people who want to work with him. Fingers crossed.

We found the "missing" house

Thanks to one of our readers, Robert, who identified the house on South Mountain Avenue.

I almost crashed into a tree while looking at it and can't believe I never noticed it before. It was right there. I mean, it looks exactly the same as in this photo. Right?

The funny thing is that I drive by the house almost daily. Which goes to show you just how many things go unnoticed in our lives...

We are very honored. Here is the story in Baristanet.

And here is the photo of the porch.

The awards ceremony is on Thursday, November 19. We hope to see you all there.

Kids Bath: Electrical - DONE

Electrical - DONE, TOO! Yay!

However, he opened a hole in the wall in the wrong place above the mirror, so now that needs to be patched up tomorrow. That means an extra day tacked on. We really wanted it to be finished tomorrow. We are already 4 days over schedule. Ugh.

I. Need. This. Job. To. End.
