goddamn ChipDrop showed up unexpectedly and dumped a mountain of mulch on my driveway. on the bright side, it was free 99.

also, the fucking electrician for my screened porch has delayed the inspections / finishing, so I'm a week behind.

What would be a rough budget i could expect to have the landscaping around my house cleaned up and re-mulched? It's a small footprint (1400sqft) and all four sides have about a 2' mulch bed around it. I remulched last year but it was a pain in the butt. I'd like to hire a company to come clean it up, reestablish the slope away from the house where it's settled, and completely remulch. What should i expect to drop?

While taking a stroll around the house checking things out, I noticed this area of my screened in porch that apparently has some rot to it. I've attached a few pics that show it around the bottom corner of what i assume to be a supporting post. It's quite spongy when pushing on the area in question along the exterior, and the board underneath is a little mushy too. I havent noticed it in any other spots, but this area tends to be exposed to the elements (corner faces north & east).

How much of a concern is this? I'm assuming this may be something I need to take care of quickly, but I want to be sure. We have some near future plans to completely window (and heat/cooling) the porch to add square footage to our house.

I would watch that corner during some decent rain to see if the gutter is leaking. I expect that is the cause more than just being exposed to the elements. You want to fix that along with replacing those boards. And definitely do that before windowing anything in.

had a fucking nickel-sized hole open up in the ceiling of one of my bedrooms during the last big rainstorm...dumped a bunch of water into the middle of the room.

I had a leak there prob 6-8 years ago that was repaired under warranty by the manufacturer (D.R. Horton). The hole is right in the middle of the slightly discolored spot where the leak was...looks like they didn't really fix the leak properly, and over time, a drip eroded a spot in the ceiling, and during a heavy rain collected enough water to burst through and dump it all into the room.
