Yes, you read that right. It’s not a typo. Our 3-4 week kitchen remodel is now entering its 19th week. We do have countertops, and our sink, faucet, garbage disposal, and dishwasher are all installed and functioning, but none of that work was done by our contractor. The only work he did was to level the stove when he was here for a very short time last Wednesday to check out a major problem that he will have to correct. Winter is on it’s way, and our new windows still aren’t caulked.
There is much work still to be done, but he doesn’t seem to have any sense of urgency. He’s very apologetic about taking so long to complete the work, but as bad as he claims to feel about it, he doesn’t feel bad enough to actually, um, you know, show up and do the freaking work.
Although he promised last week that he would come this week and get things finished up, I don’t expect him will show up anytime this week. Monday and Tuesday quickly became Wednesday, maybe, but probably not. Which translates to, I won’t be there at all this week. I’ve hear it all before and I know that his promises are empty and his assurances are meaningless. I have lost all hope.
