The house is almost finished but not much has happened lately as we are still waiting for Alecto's return. Though once things have wrapped up, I will be posting our supplier ratings for all those involved in the renovation.
As to the question of the fence and gate, we were wondering if the price quoted (which you can read here) was reasonable. So we asked Edwin, the Facilities Manager where I work, and he said to "grab it" as it was way below his computation of how much the project should cost. He even asked if Rabacon made a mistake as it was quite low. I told him that Maricel's relative owns a quarry so that's where she'll be getting the materials.
Though the quotation was deemed as a good value, we have decided that we will put up the fence once we get to talk to the neighbors so we can share the costs. It might be low, but it could be lower which is an even better deal.
There's also a bit of news that has sent us in a tailspin recently. But we won't know for a few more months what will really happen which is why I cannot post the details yet. Hint: it will involve the house.
In the meantime, this blog will be a little quiet until things pick up again.
