Fatwa Arbuckle: Misanthropologist

Happy Caturday, GN!

Steeling myself to tackle roofing-related proposals and invoices; gaaaaaaah!

OTOH, I also get to revise a $300K bid from two years ago, so that’s sort of exciting; yay El Niño!!

Happy Caturday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa!

Let’s see, $300k two years ago, times inflation, plus increased state regulatory burden, add in El Niño bonus surcharge, plus tax and tip -- yeah, I’d say that’s exciting.

Hai, Paddy!

Since the cost of the material has actually decreased a bit (it was a new Title 24-compliant product at the time) but labor’s gone up a little, it’s largely a wash in re pricing.

But if we get it, it’d be a much easier project to manage because it’s a manufacturing facility, not an HOA. I wouldn’t have to be onsite during all working hours. And we could start earlier than a residential property.

Which are good things, as it’d be a 120-mile round trip every day from Jim’s.

Also good: an In-N-Out very close to the property, as well as The Hat not too far away (I’ve been jonesing for their chili cheese fries). 😉

Back to more exciting roof reports and proposals; hotcha!
