Last Friday, 5/8/2015, we had a walk-through with a contractor (I won't say who until we decide to proceed) and some subcontractors. Laurie went through with them.
They looked at the electrical, the floors, the HVAC, and the plaster. The window guy couldn't make it, but photos should be sufficient for them to bid.
Sara emailed me over the weekend to ask for a few clarifications (bring electrical up to code or replace existing? What to do with the radiators?). She said that she should have bids from her subs this week and should be able to give us a proposal next week.
We've scaled back the scope of the project to the master bedroom and the guest room. The other two rooms can wait.
