Unfortunately the code requirements that he will be required by law to deal with are major, so I contacted two highly recommended people (thanks, Angie's List) and the first walk-through was Friday morning with the second contractor coming to bid on Tuesday morning. Then we can go on from there.
I also have been on the hunt for a new accountant since I was dumped by my previous one over an IRS action. I think I may have found a good one (another thank you for Angie's List). I spent quite a bit of time speaking with him on Thursday and I will schedule an appointment next week to meet him face-to-face along with my DH and we'll see if everyone gets a good feeling. If so, I will have found a new accountant and that would be a load from my back.
