My little wife got so many irons in the fire until she forgets how much stuff is being done while she is at work very day. It was supposed to be completed in three days, not so, they are still hammering away downstairs today but still got to remove the carpet from the staircase and install the laminated wood there after they finish the rooms downstairs today I hope. They are leaving that for last since I use the lift going up and down the stairs all day long.
We are getting quality work from these guys but now it's just two of them doing the finishing work. At first there were a crew of 6 men when they installed the ceramic title in the bathrooms and entry ways. When the inside is completed I'm thinking of repainting the house but first replacing the trim boards at the corners which is nothing but paper particle boards builders use on many homes instead of real wood.
You can see the difference where the yard man has trimmed the grass and the stringer has chipped away around the edges and corners of the trimming. Same way with the wooden fence around the bottom portions of it but it will have to keep standing as it is for a while longer.
We have been in this house for 13 years already and just had the complete roof replaced by the insurance company but the rest of the repairs are on me to pay. I think this flooring will be easier to keep up than getting the carpet shampooed twice a month. We still will have carpet in the bedrooms only but will replace it later down the road with a carpet upgrade.
Over the years we had all of my wife's family here at various times and all of them during hurricane Katrina in 2005. That's when the carpets got stained so bad with them eating and spilling sodas and drinks everywhere. The garage was filled with people too I put duct tape around the garage door edges to keep the cold out and burned the fireplace for heat. That time was truly a family affair.
But you do what you have to do for family in a crisis at times like that. I'm just paying for it now so I'm OK with it and hope it doesn't happen again any time soon. Now is the time to get flooring as they are advertising great bargains on all kinds floors and carpets. Like buy one room get three rooms free and you can pick what you want from what they got.
For that reason these guys stay busy all week long with different customers and they give you more off with each family you recommend to them. Half the choir members my wife has recommended to these guys to do flooring work for them. Other men in his crew are on other jobs now so they are making the money. All I'm hearing on Sundays is they are doing great jobs at their houses.
The deal is you go to the store pick out what you want pay the store for it then pay him for the installation work plus 25.00 to haul it to your house. Not a bad deal when the company trucks want much more for delivery to your home. All they don't use or need they will buy it back from you. I think that's how they have samples to show you what's available at this warehouse which offers very low prices throughout the store.
Well so much for this week who knows what's happening next week? The weather is much cooler in the 90's now and rain too. See Ya!
