Saturday, March 7, 2015 – FINALLY the counter tops and cabinets are finished being installed and we are happy with them. The crown molding was installed today and the door that was hinged on the right is now hinged on the left. We’ve paid them in full and are happy to have that behind us. This was the only part of the construction part where we chose who to buy from, all the rest were Ronnie’s usual subcontractors. This was the only part that we had problems with. The end result we’re happy with, just getting them to correct all the things they did wrong, along with them NEVER, not once, showing up when they were suppose to, added to a huge communication barrier because of them being Chinese and not speaking much English, was a PAIN!
Roy installed the decorative wood supports under the breakfast bar. After finding out that the studs weren’t where the original pictures showed they were, Roy made some adjustments to get them spaced properly. This is something that I did a lot of research to see what I’d like it to look like and I think what Roy came up with is perfect. The molding behind them is not painted yet.
I swept the house out again, took boxes to our burn pile and washed out the tubs (love the running water). There is a good bit of sheet rock mud stuck to the tubs but that will wait until we have lights and I can see better what I’m doing. Monday I’ll be spending a good bit of time giving the wall corners and around the door baseboards a good cleaning so that all of the paper bits are up and any construction dust is cleaned away before the floor is sealed.
Roy still has the inside of the medicine cabinets to put together, window screens to install, bathroom towel holders and rings to install and the last of the door knobs. I think he has more than that but he’s off to burn the last couple of days trash pile so I can’t ask!
Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
