Sanity/ Contractors/ Additions
Does anyone have any good ideas on how to maintain your sanity when putting on an addition onto your house? :-) I am just starting to build a 28 x 40 foot addition onto my home and so far its driving me crazy. The same amount of work can mean completely different prices. One earth work quote was 2900 dollars while another was 950.
To make matters worse, I live in a small town where feelings get hurt easily. I got two carpenters bidding for the job, and each slams the others work ethics/ quality something fierce. On just about everything they have different ideas, different prices.
So far I think I have made two friends mad at me for not using them, and a father-in-law that insists he knows a carpenter crew that can do it better. My gosh I am going nuts and we have not even turned over a shovel full of dirt yet!!
I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
