We have news on the Roadrunner house! We made the decisions we need to get the project started, and signed our old buddy Ruben of RJN Construction up to be the general contractor for this one.
You may remember Lee posted about Statements of Work a few days ago. For this project, we went all out and used the form, and it’s working out well so far.
Last Friday, Lee and I met Ruben at the house in Bryan to go over exactly what to do on the house. We were joined by a young man who is a fellow FortuneBuilders student, who wanted a chance to see how we did things as he prepares for his first project. We were happy to serve as mentors for him.
Lee had examined our options on the house carefully, and determined that the original renovation goals would leave us not making any money on the house. So, Ruben revised his estimates to include fewer items, and Lee plugged them into the Statement of Work, to serve as our budget. The walk-through on Friday helped us cement exactly what was and was not going to be done. Some things we eliminated, while other things were added. I’ll share a few of the areas where we made changes to our new plan, so you can see how our thinking went.
