I always know a remodeling project will take longer than anticipated when I am doing all of the work myself and without help. I did not expect to watch the projected timespan double on a professionally managed job. I sit here this Sunday morning with a crew still working in my bathroom, for the sixth straight day. At this point I will refrain from putting a name to the contractor as I await the final outcome of this long awaited home improvement.
I feel sorry for the replacement crew now finishing up on a project started by others. I know it’s not a pretty position to step into on a Saturday afternoon running into the Sunday before Labor Day. I am just happy right now that we have someone finishing today so we will be able to finally use the tub and shower tonight.
It’s 1pm and the workers just left…Paint will be tacky for the rest of the day I’m sure. It’s too bad the finish waited till everyone would be home for a long weekend. At least the shower will get a good workout this evening as everyone lines up for their turn to break in the new plumbing.
After the lasts months projects…I think it’s time to let the house rest (and the homeowner) for a couple of months…Maybe…
