Builders and the weather

We have been unbelievable fortunate with the weather. Lots of fine, cool windy days for the house removalist to finish up. Today they head home. Matilda is stumped, re-roofed and basic repairs are done.
 It feels like the end of Chapter 1 of this process, but this chapter was like a chapter in Lord of The Rings, long, and involved lots of twists!

Chapter 2 now. We have found a team of builders we really like and are hoping to have there quotes back tomorrow or Monday. They say they can finish the reno in 4-6 weeks. So we are expecting a blow-out of up to 4 weeks, but still that is ahead of our schedule.

Now I keep dreaming of a 4 week completion, which I can't imagine would ever happen, still it would be amazing.

So time to get our little house ship shape and ready for the real estate market. The smaller current dream is going back to one mortage, priceless, well actually about $1200 a month back in our pocket!

Will keep you updated as we move forward and can't wait for Chapter 3, the move in date!!!!!

    Thinking good thoughts about a miraculously quick turnaround on the reno for you.
