about the renovation of our new north Portland Church into our future home!

The ride is getting bumpy…

Much to my dismay, I am sad to announce that Taka has decided to pull out of the project.  His reasons are his own, and though they don’t fully make sense to me, I have to respect them and try to move on.  We are looking for a good General Contractor to replace Sakura Urban Concepts for the job. 😦

Eli is hard at work coming up with our Big List of construction items to address so we will have this to present to potential GC’s interested in bidding for the project.  I also have a  friend or two in mind to invite to the table… TBA.

Also, we have decided to go condo, rather than a zero-lot line subdivision.  this will be expensive in terms of legal fees, but not nearly as much of an expense, hassle and time-consumer as the town-home… so yeah, we need a good real-estate lawyer, now too.  This also affords us greater community control (with HOA rules), more flexibility for exit-strategy and ease & simplicity of shared utilities rather than new & separate lines.

Jim sent me another lovely Colorado condo conversion called The Sanctuary Lofts

church-condoThanks Jim!!
