The good news is that the Mattress 8 project in Temple no longer has any mattresses in it.
The bad news is that it doesn’t have a contractor working away in it, either.
It’s not for lack of trying! Lee and Mandi have been contacting potential contractors, scheduling meetings, finding the potential contractors are flaky, and starting the process again. Lots of times. I know that all our mentors say Craigslist is a great place to find contractors who will work for reasonable rates, but we are not lucking out in the Temple market at all.
But maybe the tide has turned! Lee met with another potential contractor, who even has a team and is interested in investing. His initial estimate is in line with what we think the project will cost to get it up to rental quality. We’re just waiting for the bid now.
Cross your fingers, or whatever you do to support your real estate redevelopment friends, and hope this one works and we can MOVE on this project!
