Another dismal, rainy day in a week that has only had brief glimpses of sunshine. It is a bone chilling damp and only in the low 50's but feels like the low 40's.
Today is the one year anniversary of the tree strike and I was hoping by now, the house repairs would be finished but no such luck. The painter called to schedule painting on the second floor and when I explained that the areas he is to paint are not clean due to residual construction dust, drywall dust and dirt smudged surfaces, he agreed it would not be a good idea. I told him I have been on the project manager about getting the site prepared with no luck, he said he will contact him and ask that it be professionally cleaned. The first rule of painting is start with a clean surface and we do not have that plus there is excess drywall mud on some areas that require additional sanding so I do not want them painting over them. I am done with cleaning up after contractors. I think I need to have a sit down with the project manager because we also have a number of incomplete jobs where the contractors have been very slow in coming back to finish and the list is growing. Again the domino effect because it impinges on other work that needs to be done. I am sure you are sick of hearing of my tales of woe. I cannot wait to tell you it is completed and I have my home back intact. Thanks for listening.
