re: Krestmark Vinyl Windows - OneAyedJack on 3/28/20 at 1:15 pm
[quote]Why people cut their budget at windows is beyond me.[/quote] It's probably because I have quotes on windows varying from $2,900.00 up to $19,000.00 for the same number and type of windows.

[quote]In this area, custom cabinet shops are everywhere.

re: Pre-fab cabinet companies - OneAyedJack on 3/22/20 at 11:27 am
No, no detailed mouldings. Nothing fancy here. But the custom guys have quoted me upwards of 40% more than pre-fab. And, that's before paying someone to paint! I've had paint quotes all come in between $100 and $125 per linear foot to paint. If you know of any custom guys out there that are ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
Pre-fab cabinet companies - OneAyedJack on 3/22/20 at 11:08 am
I saw a thread here about Cliqstudios shutting down and it got me thinking about cabinets in our new construction home. The current plan is to go with pre-fab cabinets. We have our reasons, but the biggest is not only the cost to build custom, but the insane cost to have them painted. Does an...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (6)

Temporary driveway during construction? - OneAyedJack on 3/18/20 at 9:20 am
After the concrete trucks came through the other day, I have a muddy sludge pit for a driveway. I need to wait until it dries up, then grade it smooth again.
