Celebratory jump after finishing roof - right as Harvey started sprinkling..Oh so sad to see the destruction Harvey had but you did a great job getting everything fixed and back to normal.
on the person jumping off the roof! Who was that??? I wondered how long it would be before someone would do it LOL
Working on cabinet order. Hopefully mid-summer time-frame to move back downstairs. Labor is relatively tight - with some contractors charging 3x to 8x what they normally would due to demand - so we aren’t in the biggest rush to be at the front of the line.Got everything you need--------------more that one jar of Nutella!!! As much as I love to eat out there are many times it is nice to be able to eat at home as well.
At least y'all have found a way to be "home". Any time line for the bottom of the house to be ready? Are they working on one room (Kitchen I would think if yes) to get it ready or are they working one trade at a time-drywall, flooring, ect.?
A good chunk of that is likely GC markup - one of my co-workers was charged $30k for repainting 1st floor... which is, needless to say, Bonkers. Some neighbors paid $5-$6 a board-foot for Sheetrock, tape & float. (About 4x normal cost). Being flexible on time seems to get better pricing though. I’m definitely still paying a premium to normal market conditions but that is expected given the wide spread destruction across the city.Good plan for sure! 3-8x regular?? OUCH!
Took better part of 5 months for processing but it’s settled now - no complaints.30K for painting the 1st floor! Glad you found a way to at least get a semi livable pricing. How has the insurance company been to work with or is that something better left talking about???
