Today, the DA approval for my renovation finally went through. I'm getting my garage knocked down, rebuilt, and the bathroom extended by 1.2m. The bad news is that the only quote I've been able to get is for $300,000. Might as well rebuild the whole house for that amount. FML

Today, a house I'm working in burned down overnight. My entire cordless tool line up and everything else needed to remodel a 3-story home is gone. Almost $14000. The only way I will be somewhat, maybe, possibly, reimbursed is if I stay on to rebuild the home. I don't have anything left to even start. FML

Sounds about right. I bought a fixer upper and googled the price range for repairs according to google in my area. Every contractor wants between 2-4x the high range price of what google said. I'm told that when contractors don't want a job they give "F-off" prices but people started paying them so now that's just the normal price.

In India, that would cost you about $5000 But then the USA is just outrageous in everything now
