the bird nest and cost of materials

Moved the nest to the cactus. More of a natural area.

For those people who are looking to do home improvement jobs the price
of sheet rock has gone up by 25%. Cost of roofing has gone up.

My drywall bid came back higher on materials and labor also went up a little because they are starting to get busy.

The reason why. All those plants that was making this material closed. Supply and demand. More people are starting to make improvements and
they can't keep up with the pace.

Plan your project and add 15-25 % to the cost of materials.

Monday.. contactors meeting.

Roofers were here

Windows will be her 8/6

stucco guy is waiting for window install

Problem solving time:
Firesprinkler guys do what they want.
They put risers in the middle of the guest room. They didn't figure it would
be a problem .. it was the easy way up and over.

We have a meeting in the morning. New bid on drywall was $700 less.

My experience has been the same, fire sprinkler guys do what they want in spite of what the drawing may say or common construction practice may be.

Great looking building !

the owner of the company came out himself. He wanted me to me happy about the job since my GC gives him a lot of work.

Garage interior walls were coated today with thompson water seal. Should be good for 5-7 years. Then just simply recoat. 7 gallons.

Anyone know where to buy hi top T5 lights cheep?

Shower pan is in



A trip to HD and some research. HO T5 are recommended for ceiling heights over 15 feet



the sewer /waste pipe under the pan

Donald, my handy man painting the walls with Thompson Masonry sealer

sprinkler piping



electricial switch box has to be moved. It needs to be 3 feet higher



relocated sprinkler risers in the guest room to the distal ends of the room


my new parts bin. $230 for 64 drawers (18 x5x4) love store closerouts

soft cost

Just finished the update on the accounting.
12% over. Mostly soft cost. The extra inspections
and not signing contracts early have really added up.

pics reloaded

The pictures are now reloaded. Decided on HVAC company. $600 more but they came up with an effective way of ducting the system.

They also up the grade of the unit to a Trane 14.5 seer and using a little bigger duct.
