Autocad Bliss

Eric has been drafting and drawing and meeting with probably 20+ contractors and the idiot utility providers for the past 6-7 weeks. Today we signed a contract with John Moody of Thomas Archer Construction to fix the floors, finish off the interior framing and install windows & doors, all of which he thinks he can accomplish in 10-15 days. His attention to detail is great and I can see us hiring him to do the finish work as well.

Eric is drawing elevations for John of every room from the vantage point of each of the 4 walls (i.e., lots of drawings). It's so cool to be able to plan out every cut of every tile, something I never would have thought of.

We already have a plumber, are close to a contract with an HVAC guy, and have a few electricians bidding on the scope now, so I think things will really start to move. I'm still hoping for a December 2009 move-in!
