Thanks to Darwin Barton
When we first pulled into the driveway I couldn’t believe what I saw. I was so mad at Tim I could have screamed – he said all this house needed was a little love to look great when what it seemed to need was a bulldozer in the front yard! When I got past the initial shock the panic set in: I didn’t know a thing about construction or contracting and I was expected to manage this place while he was at work all day? We got started and bit by bit I learned what I was doing. I cost us thousands by approving things I had no business approving and after that third contractor left the job without notice I learned to get a contract. Now we’re in the finishing steps – picking out paint colors and getting satellite star internet for the place and I’m really, really proud of what I’ve accomplished here. I don’t know that I’d want to do it again but at the end of the day I’m happy.
