Today, we met another contractor. We walked through the house and looked at the foundation. He suggested the possibility of fixing the old foundation but upon further review decided a new foundation was in order. The new contractor seems to be very educated in classic house restoration and is very interested in the project. He is willing to help as little or as much as we need. He is going to give some rough numbers this afternoon or tomorrow morning. He is also going to give us some numbers for heating and new wiring. He knows a lot of knowledgeable people that will be able to help us along with our project. This contractor thinks the foundation project should take four to six weeks. He prefers to work in the spring but says it is possible to do it this fall.
We have an artist working on an ink drawing of the house for the yellow pages. She emailed us this copy of the drawing and said she would bring over a hard copy on Thursday morning.
