re: Krestmark Vinyl Windows - OneAyedJack
[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. Spec sheets are the same and the difference is simply the name on the packaging. If I bought the ...

re: Pre-fab cabinet companies - OneAyedJack
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 ...

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...

Temporary driveway during construction? - OneAyedJack
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. But, next rain, I'll have the same sludge pit. I'm looking for an inexpensive temporary solution to allow workers to pull into my drivew...
