This phase is supposed to be finished early next week, after which we will decide what changes need to be made and then move towards construction docs, which, if all goes as planned in the cost estimating process, should be done on June 4th.

Things are a little quiet on the blog front right now. Design work is essentially complete, but before we can finalize the plans, we are getting cost feedback from the contractor to see if we are doing okay on our budget. This isn't the formal bid, but we need to know in a few key areas if we need to make changes. Since I will be putting in a bit of sweat equity into the house, this means that during this time, I am also checking out costs on items that will be my responsibility. These include the kitchen (Ikea), flooring, painting, rough electrical, base boards.
