I have a gnerally good feeling about the timber framer who approached me about the barn on behalf of the buyer. The buyer visited, saw other barns, and came back to say he wanted this barn. That was 3 weeks ago - Twice since then the framer indicated he would work up the contract and bring it by, but it hasn't happened yet. I know he is working another project that is not going as well as he had thought and that this site is at least three hours from our home.
Because of the delay I am realizing I will need to have a firm contract to protect our interests. Can anyone provide advice about what we should include in the contract? We have been asked to provide the garbage bin form construction debris since they feel they have paid a generous price. We can live with that. But what else is or is not reasonable to expect?
I'd appreciate any advice others could share. You can respond to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks, L Bargstedt
