Well, the handyman made it out today. He looked at the work we want him to do and he said he'd have to go home and run some numbers and get back to us with an estimate on a price for the woodwork and the exterior paint job. Once he figures it all out and gives us a price, we have one other guy we want to contact to see how he compares with our regular handyman in price. With our regular handyman, we will have to go out and pickup all the paint and caulking for him, whereas the other guy would already have all the paint and supplies. We live in a gated community where they have a construction office and that is where the other guy works. Of course we would have to pay for the paint, but WE would NOT have to go to Home Depot or Lowe's ourselves. So now we just sit and wait for a few days. With the rain coming in again, it will probably be mid-April before we can even get anything started, but at least we'll have an idea what it will cost us.
