Remodel & IRA

March 14th, 2017 at 06:48 pm

I sent $100 to the IRA today. Double my normal amount. Want to get that done ASAP so I don't have to think about it anymore.

Remodel is going... Exterior on current home is just about finished. It's so nice to have all new windows, front porch, front door, siding, etc. 100% improvement.

Bad news is we are projected to currently be about $10,000 over budget. So that is a downer. But we had several issues pop up, and also added several things so not really unexpected.

We are going to push ahead with the addition. Money will have to be made up by choosing cheaper finishes, working more, and/or perhaps cutting out replacing the duct work for now. ($8k)

I have received deposits for all the puppies and they have started going to their new homes. :'(

    Suze Orman always said to plan for 20% more on any remodel than the original quote. Hope you can make it work. I know it is frustrating.

    It may be easier (and cheaper) to do ductwork now than to get back to it. (while workmen are there,walls open etc.).

    We are actually about $20,00 over budget. Even by cutting out the HVAC we are coming up $12,000 short of our loan amount. Frown They have went 50% OVER their budget. We had a nice extra amount for unexpected things, but we had no idea they would miss the mark by 50%.
