And The Weeks Roll On

We have come to the end of the thirteenth week of our kitchen remodel, which was the least productive week yet. Absolutely nothing was done. Zero, zip, zilch, nihil, nada, nuthin’! Not one blessed thing.

But there is some good news. Someone will be coming next week to measure for the counter tops. Never mind that this was supposed to be done as soon as the base cabinets were installed. Never mind that a certain contractor who shall remain nameless didn’t bother to call to schedule the measurement until after we had asked him more than once when it was going to be done. Never mind that it’s going to take 7 to 10 days (or possibly longer) for the counter tops to be fabricated after the templates are done. Never mind that a renovation that was supposed to take four weeks is now heading for its 14th week, and the only unforeseen problem we ran into was a rusty elbow connected to the stack that was replaced in one day.

No, I’m not a happy camper. The best case scenario is that it will take another three weeks before it’s finished, and the reality is that it would take a near miracle for that to happen. At the rate we are going, it will be at least another 6 weeks. I’m hoping it will be done by Halloween. In the time it is taking to get this kitchen done, we could have had an entire house built.  That’s some crazy shit.

  1. Oh no, that is so annoying! I totally understand your frustration, it’s terrible to have to live in a construction site … I wish you strong nerves to deal with this, and hope the contractors will get a move on!

    • Sometimes I just have to laugh to keep from crying. We are at the mercy of the contractor, and we haven’t figured out a way to get him to give our project the priority it should have. He’s obviously not in any hurry to get the final payment.
