So I've had a sneaking suspicion that the Universe has been conspiring to make this project come together in an amazing way. From Aaron and Calder, the architects, Ken Huck, energy consultant, Dev, Kathy, Kay, and Denise at City Real Estate, to all my friends and family who have offered to help.
Well, this suspicion has been confirmed. I rode my bike home from work yesterday to find the mirror smashed on my car. Not only did the guy leave his business card and offer to pay for the damage, but he is a contractor specializing in framing and trim work. Based on his honesty alone, I hope to hire him to do some work.
