I partnered with Mike McHale and we formed Berna-McHale LLC. This is our first project together, and is going 'pretty much' on-schedule and on-budget. We eliminated a few frivolous add-ons and had some hiccups with contractors not showing up. Overall we are only 2 weeks behind schedule. It looks like we will complete the project by mid June at a 4 month turn-around.

Here are a bunch of pictures from yesterday evening, May 13th. I took them to assist in picking out Vanities & Lighting Fixtures, but it's a bit of a teaser & shows some of the flavor for the completed project.
