  3. Not so fast

    Yesterday the contractor arrived at my house, and right away that put up a red flag in my head. I don't usually see the guy unless he wants money.

Last Friday when they were here, they spent 1/2 their time carrying that heavy drywall up into the attic, so only a few small areas were completed.

    My grandson is surprised at how warm the attic is without their being any heat ...
