We met with a third contractor this morning. This one’s style is more holistic and goal-oriented. Part of the time we felt like we were being interviewed to make sure we weren’t the pain-in-the-ass type of client. His wife is evidently the designer & detail person in the company. Their process is a little different, and they’ll come in a couple weeks to do a detailed evaluation of the space before giving us a rough estimate.
We haven’t heard from either of the other contractors yet. We think we scared the first guy away (project maybe bigger than they’re used to), and we’re just on the edge of when the second one told us to expect something.
