I wanna Work for a Bank
Bad news... the contractor who did the “guaranteed work” in my basement in Feb 2002 (5 yrs guarantee sur main d’oeuvre) has vanished... both his phone #s have been taken over by individuals for the past 2-3 yrs, and longeuil 411 doesn’t have a listing for his name or his business.
Good news... the bank says I can add onto my mortgage up to the price of the original mortgage the amount of the work to be done... I just need to get written submissions to do the work and they will approve it same day. Maybe I can get my roof, back balcony and basement all done. It means I’ll again be paying almost all interest and no capital, and going back to 5 yrs ago in my finances but at least the building won’t fall down. Anyways, very cool... the bank makes $40,000 interest off me in 4 yrs, and I paid back $10,000 and now I’ll take it out again.. hahaha.
Now I have to start the fun process of finding contractors who are worth shit.
Ahhh, I just LOVE contractors. And their dust, mud, messes, their disregard for my house, lawn, things, their never showing up when they say, their hours (starting at 6:30 am... WHY???), the wonderful surprises of hidden owies that have to be fixed by another expert immediately on the spot for $100 per hour, plus $25 for "call fee" and half hour pay for "displacement fee". yay.
OK, haha, bet you thought I was an ILLUSTRATOR!! That I sat at a DRAWING TABLE and DREW and then could bill people! hahahah!! Funnily enough, my clients and I were under the same insane delusion. haha.
yes, I have gone stark raving mad.
It's ok. The bank will FINANCE me.
No corrections, no drawing, no materials, no dust, no filthy water or rusty tools.
ps, please read back previous two entries... this is the third on in twelve hours. I am back with a vengeance.
