September 3, 2017


The last thing I wrote on my last post, which was in April, was that I was going to post more often, lolzzz. It’s September! Usually when I stop posting it’s because we aren’t seeing progress but I am happy to report that this time it is quite the opposite.

So what have we been up to? I can’t believe I am typing this but we found some amazing general contractors. That’s right we fired a second contractor and hired a third. And I guess it’s true what they say, third time is the charm. Our new GC started work on March 28th and by June 1st we were living in the garden rental unit. On August 1st we moved upstairs into the main unit. We have seen unbelievable progress in the last 5 months and our contractor has hit EVERY.SINGLE.DEADLINE. After a year and half of terrible experiences I didn’t think it was possible. In about two weeks we should be complete with all construction. Bring on the punch list!

Here’s a little before and after of the exterior…

Still a few things to do outside but almost there 🙂
