We have done a lot of work on our house already, and we want to have a lot of work done by professionals as well. Despite not having any money yet (my husband's first paycheck comes Friday), we are having a parade of contractors come through to give us estimates. Someone came last Friday to estimate how much it would cost to put in ductwork for central AC, we visited a cabinet showroom over the weekend. Yesterday we had a flooring person by to estimate the cost of refinishing our floors. Tonight another HVAC person comes, then we have two more flooring people over the weekend. And we still haven't found a general contractor or handyman that is both professional enough to return calls and willing/able to fix the wall in our kitchen.
Since we can't afford to get all this done at once, once we have all the quotes in hand we will have to decide what exactly we want done and when.
