So we had to move all our stuff into the Living Room. After sending a car load of stuff to Community Thrift and Goodwill, here's what we have left:
This is just a reminder to everyone that a contractor's timeline is often an estimate. Things happen--people get sick, someone else has an emergency that trumps your job (like a leaking roof), or you request to add things that push back that timeline. Both at home, at Retrograde, and at Ye Olde Dayjobbe, I've found that life happens. When you've got a hard deadline (like someone moving in, or returning from a trip) and they demand all the work gets done in time, guess what happens? Concessions are usually made. Or you work overtime to make sure it gets done on time. Or you agree to a second phase.
I'm looking forward to when everything can be cleared up and put away. I have some plans for new art and a new life for the Living Room. Stay tuned!
