My Saturday

April 7th, 2007 at 04:45 pm

The new lay out is pretty cool. Much easier to read and nicely organized. The only thing that I would add is spell check.

I got the estimate for the new roof today. It is going to run about 12,000.00 and that is not including gutters. I don't know if that is a good price or not since I do not know the prices when it comes to construction and such. The work will be guaranteed for 30 years. I have another estimate on the way from the guy who came on Thursday. I'm wondering if he will be in the same ball park with his price. I am debating on taking out a short term loan for this, the floors and the deck. I think I will check out Capital One and see what their rates are like.

My DD came home from Cozumel and she is now a certified SCUBA diver. Yeah!

I spent most of today getting ready for tomorrow, as I am hosting Easter at my house. I ordered the food and got alot of decorations , sternos and tins from the dollar store. This is actually the first time I got a chance to sit and relax today. The puppy even got a bath today so that she smells nice tomorrow for the company.

The accountant called today and said that my taxes were finished and that he would be electronically filing them. He said that I would be receiving a return and that I could have it by direct deposit. I thought that was pretty cool and decided to do it that way.

After all the repairs my car is running like a champ. I just hope she keeps it up.

I hope all of you have a Happy Easter and a Joyful Passover.

    Roofing costs around here went through the roof so to speak since there have been so many storms the last few years. I think they had doubled by the end of 2005 from what we had expected. I'm glad you are getting at least two estimates. Turned out the first guy (and the one we went with) had accidently misadded the size of the roof. He ended up giving us a discount because of it. We had seen the work he had done on some neighbors' houses so we felt he was the one. But the cost had surprised me!

    Our house is 1650 sq ft not including garage and our new roof last year was just under $12,000 without gutters (ours are fine). We got the 50 year which means 30!

    I think that I will seek out a third estimate so that I know that I will have a chance to get the best price that I can. The gutters are going to run about 3.00 per foot uncapped and 6.00 capped. I think I want to go with the capped so I don't have to worry about cleanning the leaves out of the gutters.
