Special Carpentry Prices for Doors and Niches

One thing that has been TBD in the budget so far and not included at all, even as an estimate, is the special carpentry for the hall closet doors and the nicchie.

Now, we have an estimate for this work. My first reaction was that the costs seemed high, but Kevin reassured me that the carpenter was very good — the only one he works with these days after trying others — and that the costs are reasonable, actually even better than others charge.

In total, the carpentry will add about 2,500€ to the project budget.

I mentioned to Kevin that the total nicchie cost should probably be somewhat less. as the three bathroom nicchie are only 15cm deep and have three shelves. I expect this will get reflected in the actuals.
