THE DUMPSTER HAS ARRIVED - CHAPPAQUA 10514

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Fresh Eyes For Your Home

Yes, it is D-Day at Chez Cohlan-the kitchen is being demolished and the dumpster has arrived.  We have already had an additional expense creep up-lolly columns under the living room floor where the baby grand lives and, moving the air conditioning return to a more convenient place.  The fun has started and the cash register is ringing!

The dumpster is unloaded

So true, and our "blathering" today inspired a post about a house being too ongepatshket and getting rid of all of the chazzerei before selling.

Joanna, in today's busy remodel world, unexpected expenses are almost expected.  Our contracting company bid a job in April 2012.  When it started in June 2012, our material prices went up 300% in one area.  We can't pass that one along.  Ouch!  Now you've got me worried about my living floor where our baby grand lives.  I should check that!!

Hi Erica, yes I love a dumpster-I love the feeling of filling it up!

Sharon, don't be jealous-your new home is beautiful and you know, your tastes change over time and, it's wise to live in the house for a while to really get the feel of it!  It will happen!

Hi Debbie, me too-the construction creep is not easy-every time you open up a wall...
