We got recommendations on builders, drew up plans, and got estimates. Then we chose our contractor and started the “three week” job at the end of October, hoping to finish before Thanksgiving. In all, the work took over 30 working days to complete. We had about ten different sub-contractors on the job, several working at the same time. The saying, “twice as long and twice as much,” has been true this time.
With the extra bedrooms now complete, the race is on to get organized before Christmas.
