let the games begin

so today is my first full day of home ownership and it has been back to back work meetings. turns out, owning a house does not mean you get to work less (bummer). yesterday was crazy! and it still feels pretty wild to own a house. lindsay and i went over there late last night after meeting the newest member of the fRamily (thanks tomicah and sarah) and having a delicious stuff manacotti dinner prepared by our very own italian iron chef dinna. it was fun to finally show the house to lindsay. she helped me get super excited about getting it fixed up and, of course, had awesome ideas.

so now it is time to figure out how much of this renovation i will do myself and how much i should hire out. the next few weeks are set aside for bids. then once i get bids on my projects and feel comfortable with various workers, i will start hiring people.

and that is where you come in, especially you in dc. i am looking for:
  • plumber
  • electrician
  • roofer
  • fireplace installer
  • exterior (point and seal)
  • exterior painter
  • interior painter
  • HVAC
  • flooring
  • carpenter
  • green energy consultant
if you know any people like this you can recommend, please send those recommendations my way.

i keep wanting to take the blog on a tour of the house and everytime i am there i forget to take photos...stupid!
