What's NOT ok is that the contractors don't seem to be working as hard as I think they should be. I'm here at the house during the day trying to make some sense of our stuff with nowhere to put anything b/c the place is truly a construction zone - but no one else is here!! Why isnt anyone working???? I need to see the work happening to believe it. We are waiting and waiting but for what? Getting a little anxious here. ALOT ALOT anxious.
Updates so far:
- We have ordered carpets for the bedrooms (2 kids rooms and our master bedroom). It is a beige remnant piece which we got half off because someone cancelled their order with the store so they are stuck with tons of this beige carpet, which isnt the BEST quality but it does the trick. Score. We can't afford going with the fancy carpet/runner which is ok. This is all extra fluff that are not necessities so it's just fine.
- We were quoted an arm and leg for tiling the laundry area and next door powder room downstairs. We thought they'd just "throw it in" for us considering how much we are getting done so we bought some super cheap extra tiles from Home Depot for 57 cents a sq foot and asked if they'd throw it in but they didn't bite. Yikes. SO we're now getting an environmental wooden flooring for that area. Not so sure wooden flooring should go down in a laundry and bathroom area with potential water spillage but that's what we're doing. We placed the order, got our quote, had the guy measure the area and picked up the wood. Did anyone know the wood has to sit in the room in which it's going to be installed for ONE WEEK to match the temperature of the room. I didn't. Now I do. and now we wait one extra week. FML.
- We went to check out faucets and fixtures today at a super fancy store so we can find hte more affordable version elsewhere, perhaps online. We love the idea of a rain shower - but there are SO many kinds and so many varieties. May just close our eyes and point to pick this one :)
