Crazy burst of winter here the last couple of days, rain and hail, high wind, cold, while I try to get a roof, the actual waterproof surface on all the structure, installed. IF it goes back to bright and sunny for the next three days, and dries everything back out, my roofer starts on Tuesday.
Having that roof on, and all the inspections completed for the various mechanical systems within (plumbing, electricity, heat, AC, gas, low-voltage etc) clears the way for the final phase of the project, covering everythijng up and making it all beautiful.
I am at the 2/3 mark on the project in terms of time and money, and so far the "budget" has held to within less than 10% of projections, despite the owners' ongoing flights of fancy. I have to say that I am putting together one hell of a lot of house for $215/SF, which is a modest outlay given the comparables in the neighborhood. Were they to sell this property upon completion, which they insist will never happen, they would make a ROI of about 50%, even given the slight downturn the market here.
OK, I am late here. You know why we are here. What's up with you?
