Yup. It's been a good week for Hardy House.

The plumber we decided to go with for Hardy House called last night with a quote. It is going to cost us $3,480.00 for labor and materials (we supply the fixtures) to rough plumb our two full baths. As is typical in Hardy House, we have to still do a little work before the plumber can begin. Because a couple of joists will need to be cut (this was not a surprise) we need to do some framing which we hope to have done this week or over the weekend. What plumber are we going with? That would be Dan Blankenberg of Macedon Plumbing & Heating Inc. (315) 986-3480. How did we decide on Dan? We asked around and he came highly recommended. I'm hoping we will be shopping for our fixtures tomorrow night. We expect to be purchasing Moen's Vestige collection for both baths. I was surprised at how limited the options were in bath fixtures. I was hoping there would be thousands. There were only hundreds. That may seem like a lot but when you figure in styles and price ranges and qualities, it really isn't that much. Oh well. I like what we picked out.

This afternoon I also met with Jerry Knibbs (see earlier in this blog for a word about Jerry and his crew). Jerry came out to take some measurements. We want to get on his schedule for around July sometime to do our drywall. Jerry expects to get a quote to us around the end of the week. He is figuring the job will take about 2-2 1/2 weeks to do with three guys hanging the drywall and two to finish up with the finishing. Okay by us.
