I wish there was a better way to present that information. But I think I did a pretty good job on listing

the work that needs to be done when I did my original walkthru!  The news is that when the Partner Comes out next week they will be bringing one of our very trusted handyman whom we will be able to get a lot cheaper by paying a daily labor charge instead of the $65 to put in “Light Bulbs, Air Filter, Flapper, Smoke Detector”;  Seriously?

I also noticed that I was pretty accurate when I did my cost projecting for painting and remodel in the Zavala Apartment.  $500-$600 for painting, drywall repairs.  And While I haven’t gotten to doing the sinks and bathrooms in Zavala, I expect that Faucet/Sink costs of $220 is a pretty good.

So here’s the breakdown:

Not that we are being cheap, but we know our Handiman is out of work and a good week of  him down here lets us save money and actually work side by side with him as we work on the apartments.  Hands-on is going to be the goal with the first one, and so we have a little bit of work planned.
