Would that not have been a line item on your proposal?

It is the second item on the SOW. Design/consultation is first.

Strangest part is, he is as an estimator for a very large HVAC contractor.

Re: I Got B!tched At Today...


Looked at a master bath gut in an affluent area on Saturday. She said she wanted to start right away, I said well I have other work and we havent selected any material or tile design to accurately estimate then there the permit. That night she sent me a cell phone picture of a tile
By Tuesday she said she was going to go with a contractor that could start this week.

Besides the demeaning tone in which she treated the process and my time I think the biggest thing was the permit.
A lot of people dont want to draw attention to the tax accessor around here.

I don't think regular updates and maintenance affect the property taxes around here.

They do a lot of places up here. They'll just tack on the estimated cost of the project to the valuation.

Are you sure? I thought that the only reason that permits were required was so that they would know how much to raise your taxes.

Anything under 500 square feet doesn't get a reassessment here. I've literally built a room addition that was 499 square feet.

When I made a trip to Scotland I asked why the windows were bricked up, in a lot of the homes. He said they used to tax you by the number of windows in your home. He said, clever Scots just bricked in their windows.
