We had a meeting today with Brain (the planner) and Ken (the contractor). Brian finished up the preliminary plans and presented them to us and the contractor. We will end up with 2 new bedrooms, a office, a bathroom and a study alcove. The next step is for Ken to come up with a ballpark estimate of the building costs. We will have to meet with him to discuss which parts of the project we are going to do ourselves and then it will take him one to two weeks to get back to us with the estimate. After that, Brian will do the final plans and get the structural analysis done. He said that will take 4-6 weeks to complete. That means we are look at October before any work at all will start.
