Dear PoPville – Pop Up Advice

Ed. Note: Our 4pm post will show how the house above looks today.

“Dear PoPville,

I am in the final stages of design and permitting for a partial third floor addition to my house (yes, the dreaded pop-up, but hopefully the community will like our design).

I’m wondering if anyone in PoPville has personal recommendations on contractors for the work that I should research and/or get bids from. If so, please share!

Also, if you have any tips, suggestions or horror stories for things I should watch out for in doing this project I’m definitely interested in hearing them. I have a great architect but there is always something else to learn and keep in mind.”
