Breaking ground on 271!

We did it! We finally signed a general contractor!! They started preparing for excavation this week - took off the back deck, etc. So 2008 is going to be the year of the renovation after all! At the moment, they are predicting to be finished in July so we are now scrambling to amass our renovation finances into a liquid state so we can pay them as they go. Since it's a slow time for construction, we're getting the benefits of the GC wanting to keep his guys busy - so he's passing along all his discounts and not taking his usual profit margin. Building supplies have come down since they were first estimated also so we might be able to stay within the budget.....well mostly :-)

We'll start taking pictures this weekend and posting them so you can all see the progress. It's pretty exciting!!!! Happy New Year everyone!
