That was the scope, or part of it.
The contractor was just out here today to start finalizing the job.
Turns out that He did not email me the Spreadsheet for the extension,
roof, walls, foundation. He only sent me the one that was for the room
division or the existing living room into a bedroom and den. The first
part of the project. That was for 11 to 13K.
Today he said the total job would be slightly less than 40K so he is
going to write her up, and be back in a few days. His price is in the
lower section of the bids still. So we'll see soon enough. If I were
younger I could do it all, but, I would be working too which would
make it impossible for me to do in a timely fashion. He has an

There you go ... off the top of my head that's roughly $130sf, which is

Sounds like you are on the right track at this point.
I can't cite everything it would be boring for most people. Our phones

the lower part of the walls in the front.
New price is slightly less than 40, his spreadsheet only included
costs for the existing LR mods. Includes relocating kitchen plumbing a
few feet. I could send up a floor plan to the other ng, but with the
troll clown about I don't need the aggravation. His "karma" is going
to be costly when it hits him.
Awwwww, looks like mean old Mr troll has acquired rent free
accommodations inside your tiny cranial cavity, snowflake.
Dry your eyes, put on your big girl panties and post your
nonexistent fantasy spreadsheet wherever your tender heart
desires. Reclaim your man-card!
