Well...the project continues (how a two day tile job got stretched into a week is beyond me)...but here is an update.
I must say though, we're still getting a deal. And to top it off, we've had good luck with the contractors we didn't know. Major props to Immaculate Construction out of Tacoma/Lakewood and Edgewood Electric out of Edgewood WA for their wonderful jobs they did earlier in the fall. If you're in the area and you need some work done look these guys up!
