I finally heard from JH's brother, RH, and he said he'd have time next week to come over and have a look at our house and give some helpful suggestions. I've found that until the job it done, however, it's all talk. I hate to be so cynical (actually, I don't, I love it), but I've just had so many experiences with contractors where they just stop calling or don't show up. Don't they want our money?
Either way, R is wavering a bit on the color of the house, so we may ask for some helpful suggestions there, as well. The main thrust of the meeting, though, will be to get some advice on the inside.
We'll see where that one goes. Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to Ove Tøpfer for the pic.
