Home update

I've pretty much decided to go forward with selling the place--or, more likely, short selling. Recent HOA snafus have not made me any more fond of the idea of staying here, it has to be said. :P

This means I need to get my place ready to show, which means getting my master bath repaired (there's water damage behind the shower enclosure walls). I was hoping to use the general contractor who's done work on this building for over 20 years, but he's going to be renovating a house for a couple months, and I don't want to wait that long. If any of my NW readers have any GC recommendations, I'd love to hear them! Here's a list of what I need done:

Tear out shower enclosure walls & shower pan
Repair/replace water damaged studs, then completely replace the shower enclosure (faucets, walls, tile, pan etc).
Retile the bathroom countertop to match the shower
Replace ceiling fan (hopefully just a straight swap with the newer version of my old fan I just purchased).

Drop me a line if you know anyone who does good work without gouging the customer!

You're the second person to mention Angie's List...I'd never heard of it until now! I think I'm okay with personal references, but I'll definitely keep your offer in mind--thank you!

And I've already started pulling the tile down--it'll go faster when I have a proper chisel, heh.

(hug) Thanks for the sympathy. I'm not thrilled about it, but I'm not devestated either--it's been a real learning experience, and I'll do things so much better next time!
