We’ve taken another big step with the Guest House project. We signed a contract with Ross Carpenter of Carp Construction, a contractor who is working with sub-contractors we know and trust. We’ve seen his work and appreciate that he’s been able to save us some money, probably helped by our preferred lumberyard.
Because Ross already has a couple projects starting this Spring, our starting date will be in early summer. We will wait till Santi gets back from a teaching visit to Brazil so that he can make sure the excavator doesn’t hit any of the lines we laid 5-6 years ago. The odds are good that excavation will begin the end of July, which will allow moving in by the end of the year.
If you haven’t donated yet, please help us with the remainder of funds needed.
In July we’ll begin sending regular emails reporting progress with images on this blog.
