Original list of projects gave us piecemeal costs; needed to have a best guess of what everything we wanted to do would cost

HVAC: 1 more contractor coming tomorrow; he originally put the controls on current system. Hopefully by next board meeting will have a quote from him.

Tom Wood charges $180/hr. Once we get new bids in, Bill proposes we have him review these bids before we accept anything

Courtyard Design plans: two bids; Bill recommends taking Alliance bid

Carpet: obtain preliminary cost of moving stack area, in addition to carpet costs from two other carpet retailers

Roof membrane: obtain bids for resealing current membrane, rather than replacement. No need for infrared study. Just need to coat the membrane
