This has got to be the best experience with a construction crew ever. They showed up exactly on time, have been careful with the mess, made sure the animals didn't get out, and they've done more than they said they would. There was a slight bit of confusion about who was supplying the paint, which was quickly fixed by a call to the project manager, but other than that, it was great. They found the cause of the leak: a hole in the wall next to the sewing room window, which was patched by shoving a random piece of wood into the hole and nailing it into place with nails so long that they penetrated the outside wall. This house was very well built in 1906, but some of the repairs since then are really interesting.

Best part? They're pretty sure they'll be done today.

That's quite an endorsement! Contractors are such a crap-shoot. Usually by the time you're able to evaluate them, it's too late to change horses...
