Yesterday they finished the roof on my brand new attic dormer. It's hard to believe they can complete a dormer in just a few days. The workers left last night at 7 p.m., and this morning we woke up to find it snowing in Chicago. I would say that was definitely good planning, or a struck of good luck.
Today I was able to walk around inside the back of the attic and the space does feel a little bigger. I can't get a handle about how the finished product is going to look, because
I guess no matter how well you plan, you always have some added costs in a big home improvement project. Mine is no different. I had to write the contractor a check today for additional money to level the attic floor. As I was writing the check, I looked at the calendar, and realized that it is St. Patrick's day.

Stan did say that they finish up all
I haven't heard word one from my contractor since Tuesday. He said he was going to get back to me on Wednesday, but he didn't. I came down with a cold, so I'm kind of glad that I got to rest up a bit before he finally gets over here and starts the work.
I do get aggravated when people say they are going to do something and they don't, but he's running the show and I'm not the nagging type.
Kathy looked over the architect's plans the other day, and raised some concerns.
