We recently wrapped up six months on a custom home project – the full trim package with the main focus being on the custom designed staircase which went very well. As these types of jobs are prone to do the scope of work took on a life of it’s own and we found ourselves doing all the stain work followed by all the paint prep thru-out the whole house.
This project was a good experience for us in that since we have been doing our own general contracting for the last eight years we had forgotten how challenging it can be to work a large project with other contractors all doing their own thing! Very enlightening!
With any luck we be able to access the job again soon and get pictures of the finished product so that we can post them here.
The investment house was finished during the course of the large project and has been listed for sale for ten weeks or so – sluggish market though so we are trying to be patient with the process. Sweat equity gains a whole new meaning when you are busy and still trying to put some time in on an investment property – …..so… we have taken on another house that we will be renting for a time until the market levels out a little bit.
Starting in December we will be exploring opportunities in Northwest Arkansas as well as still operating in the Kansas City Kansas/Missouri areas. Change is very exciting and we are looking forward to exploring the options being presented to us!
