Change order 16

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.

Plans here. Already approved by city.

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
Inspections $300
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
Window $500 Allowance
Garage door $1500 Allowance
Hardware $0 Allowance
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
Lighting fixtures $500 Allowance
Foundation $11400
subtotal $37798
Overhead & profit $6910
Total $44708

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.
