NWR: Affordable rec's for home remodeling?

Hi Ladies,


we are purchasing a total fixer upper that needs A LOT of work! we are scheduled to get the keys 1 week b4 our wed so i'm trying to get an idea on how much I can do in that week to get our future home ready.


Does anyone have rec's for hardwood floors, granite counter tops, paint & crown molding? 


thanks!!!

We put in bamboo hardwood flooring and love it!  It's not only very pretty and modern, but much less expensive than other types of hardwood (which was what sold us laff).  It is also touted as a "greener" option than other hardwood because it re-grows much faster.

If you need a contractor, I highly recommend Ron @ Sunland Construction. We removed all our acoustic popcorn on the ceiling, repainted the whole interiors, added crown moldings, added granite counter top, had the shower re-tiled, bath tubs and toilets replaced. They are very affordable compared to many others but they do get busy so call in advance.


His email addy is ronanhnguyen@sbcglobal.net


Just let him know that Betty referred you. HTH!
