So my restoration guy, Ron from South Jersey RV, sent me my first invoice of things done to the Sovereign
. I'm very happy with the work I've seen from him, and the price to me is very reasonable for what was done. Build cost so far, including parts, is $4390.59. Here's a breakdown of what has been done:
7/13-7/14: Removed rear underbelly tank pan and tank. Removed rotted steel to determine new steel req'd. Found approx. 6" bad wood at rear floor. Remainder of steel is OK.
8/8-8/12: Began carpet removal. Measured for new mattresses and sofa cushions.
8/17: Replaced clearance lights. Continued removal of galley counter. Picked up holding tank pan and steel for pan support.
8/18: Began repair of floor at doorway. Decision made on upholstery fabric as per Strittmatter(?) selection.
8/19: Completed floor repair at doorway.
8/20: Owner visit. Replace all copper water piping w/ pex. Install new TV antenna and discard existing signal booster. New drapes to be Adamo White (from Ambruso). Install scare light. New water pump to be Whisper King.
8/22: Began removal of copper water piping, existing converter.
8/23: Remove bath lav. faucet and old water pump mount platform. Began alteration of existing duct for new heat duct connections.
8/24: Completed removal of converter & water piping. Began platform for mounting new furnace.
8/25: Completed installation of new furnace and alteration of ductwork to accomodate new unit.
Demolition hours came in at 30.25 hours at $35/hr and Standard hours came in at 32.50 hours at $65/hr. Parts are 1089.34 so far. I think that's pretty reasonable. What do you say?
