My second of two goals for this month was to get some quotes for some Home Improvement work that must be done at the house.
I got a quote of $350 labor only for someone to come, rip out the old insulation and install new insulation at my home. I have not had a chance to go to the Home Depot or Lowes to price out rolls of insulation or to research it at all. The contractor wants $50/hr to do the work (8x50=250), plus an additional $100 for an assistant to help him out. I have nary a clue if the $50 is reasonable, overpriced or what. To me it sounds a bit much, but I have not hired anyone to do work at the house in a couple years. I'm going to make a few more calls and get a couple more quotes.
I've got a call into a couple people for new gutters as well. My old gutters are not functioning, and that's been on my replacement list since I bought the house.
Just slowly working on that second goal!
