    hilton was alright
    probably great if you have a lot of money and like to golf, go out to eat, and shop
    my highlights were some mini golf and some bowling

    it's a good feeling watching them start and rip the house up....

    but it's one hell of a feeling when they did a good job and finish....


    I'm still so fucking happy that I got mine done.... but my bank account isn't happy.... ohh well...

    This is probably answered in your link, but why aren't you doing the work yourself this time?

    The work that I've seen you do was beautiful in the past.

    it's one thing to do a room remodel... it's another to strip a whole house of its siding. too much work for one dude really. i don't blame him at all.

    B answered below, but basically I want to enjoy my summer this year and just finish up the trim details on my deck and back room. I want to sit back and enjoy the weather and play golf on the weekend :) If I was to tackle this my whole summer is shot as I work 50 hours a week at my day job...

    Thanks for the compliments though - I'll show some final pics of my craftsmanship on the decks, etc.
