We met with our contractor late last week to finally get some numbers out of him. Way back when we started this process we had a meeting with our contractor and architect and discussed our budget. Nothing was said at the time about the amount we discussed and the fact that it may be much too small but when we received the estimate last week it was nearly TRIPLE what we were expecting.
This is part of the reason I have been so quiet on the blog lately – my husband and I are trying hard to digest this, along with other major hits to our progress.
We have brainstormed a bunch and have options we need to pursue. But first we need to get a copy of the itemized expense estimate from the contractor so I can get my hands on it! I want to dig a little deeper! Find out what is driving this cost and how we can save.
