slow but sure

January 29th, 2018 at 03:01 pm

Rooms all painted, flooring installed. We now are dealing with serious cleaning and repair of the bathrooms and kitchen. I was able to get the upstairs bathroom sink to plug up and then replace a gasket in the tub so it would also plug up so we could clean the jets. It's clean but there is mineral build up so we're going to have to soak some vinegar rags in the jets. The downstairs bathroom needs work. The shower stall has a hole and is cracked. I went to the company we bought it from and it's no longer made so we're going to have to replace the whole thing. We got a few quotes and we're going with the guy my wife thought was the most easy going, happens to be the cheapest price. Although, this weekend she saw the Frankie and Grace episode where the contractor take the money and all the copper pipes so she's nervous. I think it will be ok.

What we have to start doing is getting packed up. We're probably going to have to hire someone because most of the folks who have helped us have already been very generous and our friends are getting up there in age or have medical issues. Soon we can start bringing over car loads but the big stuff like a sleeper couch we have will need stronger hands. I expect we'll be in within 6 weeks. It should take a day or two to fix up the townhouse for sale.

    Reputable contractor's ask for money after the job is complete, not before. If he's asking for payment ahead, then pick someone else. Good luck getting into your home soon.

    Listen to CCF. Some contractors may ask for a little for materials, but not a lot. Ask around too before you hire anyone. If you do Facebook, put the question out there and ask if anyone knows good or bad about specific contractors.

    Thanks for your feedback, the contractor we choose has a good rating and reviews through Home Advisor. He started today and she keeps sending me pictures of the progress. I think she's really excited which is good. Yesterday was a tough day. We're both a bit tired and stressed over all of this. We're planning some breaks from the work.
