To make this remodeling adventure that much more scary, for Halloween, Jacquela and Steven today approved change order 16 — the addition of a third garage bay to Emerald Hill.
We have been working with Ranserve to refine the project and rein in costs.
Here’s what we approved:
|Builder’s risk insurance||$85|
|Site supervision / general labor||$3250||No overhead and profit charged to this item|
|Demo / Prep||$1500||Includes dumpsters|
|Brick masonry||$500||Repairs at tie-in|
|Framing labor / materials||$9720||No interior wall|
|New roof and roof repairs||$4298|
|Drywall and texture||$0||Allowance, but eliminated from project|
|Flooring — concrete epoxy||$0||Excluded|
|Exterior painting only, no interior painting||$1770|
|Electrical||$2475||Includes exterior hook up to power pole|
|Overhead & profit||$6910|
You can order shed and garage kits online for about the same cost, plus construction labor and permits; or prefabricated metal buildings for a lot less money yet would also require more labor to tie together the two structures — and still need permits.
This gets the job done, adds tons of storage to the house, adds protected parking, adds workshop space for the power tools — and ties all the structures together, correctly.
Ranserve reports we will break ground the week of 2 November.
