Contractor Meetings

This past week we met with three contractors to get bids about the updates we want to make to the house.  We have developed quite a list of changes we'd like to make and we ran it through with three of them.  Once we get the bids back we will choose the one that we think is the best fit and submit it for approval.  Here is the list of changes we went through with them: 
  • Fix Foundation
  • Radon mitigation
  • Porch fence
  • Update Electrical
  • Furnace Repair
  • Hot water heater 
  • Fireproof wall in basement
  • Update stove & fridge
  • Granite counters in kitchen
  • Ceiling fans in bedrooms
  • Remove wall, create breakfast bar or add island
  • New sink in kitchen
  • Tile floor in kitchen
  • Turn coat closet into pantry
  • Master Bedroom Conversion to Master suite
  • Update kitchen light fixtures
  • Replace cabinet faces with glass
  • Pull up carpets and refinish hardwoods (if necessary)
  • Move carpet from upstairs to downstairs
  • Improved attic insulation
We liked two of the contractors and were not fans of one of them.  It will be interesting to see how the bids come back so we can make comparisons and make the best choice for us.
