Type(s) of Victory: Fixed something in my life, Found a great team member

Wasted much time trying through word of mouth to find a good contractor. No good deals. Did much of the work by hiring subs and doing much of the work with my own hands. Reached a point where demolition and basic framing were done and needed a GC to take over. I prepared all the paperwork for a GC but he refused to sign for his bid of $53,000.00 that was for labor mostly and some very basic materials (drywall, paint, and trims!!!) All the rest I have already purchased. He wanted me to sign a contract that where he did not have a timing schedule, no penalties for delays (how could there be delays if he does not declare a deadline?), and 18% interest in payment for any payment delays on my part. I don't know what he was smoking. I went to the Home Depot, found another licensed contractor, signed a deal on the offer he gave me for $20,250.00 and we are moving. The only difference is that I am paying for the materials such as drywall, trims, and paint. Some price drop there!

Shout Outs & Testimonials

I never expected that this suggestion given to us from Lee Escobar, of going to Home Depot and seeking people there would lead to such a difference. I hope it all turns out well but so far it is promising.
