Magic

In the last week, I've hired 2 (count them! 2!) contractors. Friday, I'll finally be getting the switch put in to hook the generator up to (yay local electrician!). He's going to charge less than half of what the other crack smokers wanted, and comes well recommended.

Also! This summer, we'll be painting the outside of the house. College Pro kids will be coming out to seal all the cracks and meticulously paint the siding. We even called some of their references from last year, all of whom raved about their experience. And the quote from these guys was nearly that of the quote we got on the old house with half the square footage (don't ask, I have no idea how that works). So, happy. Now, we just need to pick the colors.

I can't believe that this is going well. I'm just waiting for the bottom to drop out somewhere. But if all goes as expected, Friday afternoon I'll be calling the plumber to get my garbage disposal put in. Wheeee!

Hey, do any of the people you're working with do fencing? We need to have a fence put in, and I hear it's expensive, so I'm scared. Can you recommend anyone?

I haven't done any fence work, and the only people I know who have recently didn't have a very good experience. But! I'm finding that Angies List is pretty reliable. So far I'm 2 for 2.

Oh, what's Angie's List? Can you URL me?

Reviews and ratings on contractors/services by area. There's a fee for signing up, but I've already saved enough to pay the fee several times over. It looks like they have several listings for fence builders with excellent reviews.
