Day 42 delayed completion

Well, it’s day 42 of the proposed completion date, and it’s frustrating. Todd came back from his long weekend and almost finished mudding, sanding and priming the basement. Dust everywhere…another very frustrating thing. Hopefully he will have completed the back splash, the baseboards, the framing of the closet (more dust) etc., etc. etc. It’s still only Todd working on our place.

The kitchen is still not quite done, almost but not quite. Still a few knobs to install.

The floors are an issue. They were finished about a month ago, and of course, there is quite a bit of traffic which caused scratches. And then there are the existing floors in the house, which weren’t covered in time and even if they were the coverings came off and were not replaced. Scratches, cement and such spot the floors. The contractor wants to split the cost…can you imagine? If they broke a window, would he expect to split the cost? And on top of that, the cost he quoted is exactly 2X the cost we got from our floor finisher…so much for splitting!!!! I didn’t even want to have to sand all the floors, the dirt and dust are very invasive and I am sick of it. I just want this experience to be over. Although I am relieved it’s closer to the end, I am not as happy as I thought I should be considering how much it cost. The emotional cost has been more than I could ever have imagined. And it’s not over yet.
