Our first estimate

Yesterday we finally got back our blueprints and an estimate from a guy who does excavation and concrete slab/footings. For our 1200 square foot straw bale home he is estimating it being around $9222 and then the extra it will take for the radiant floor is another $1600. That is all more than we expected. Russ then spoke with his electrician friend and he recommended another guy who he says does better work than the original. He also gave us names of two other sub contractors that we now have plans out to for estimates. So it really seems to be all about asking around- and finding out who would the people that know anything about construction hire to do work for them. So, stay tuned as the numbers keep rolling in!
