5 months (and counting)

Tuesday, April 14, 2009

The basement renovation is still not done. All that's left is staining two exposed panels of the cabinetry, removing garbage and removing the lock box from the door. All of this should be done by Friday (where have I heard that before?) but the contractor called me today to see if he could pick up our final payment tomorrow.

No effing way.

He will get his cheque when the job is done. I already feel like he isn't moving because we've only held back 20%. I'd insist on holding back more next time. If there is a next time.

On the plus side, we have moved all of of the kids toys, the freezer, my sewing stuff and all of the storage boxes (Christmas decorations, china, tools, camping supplies, etc.) downstairs. The kids are having a ball playing down there and it seems a lot easier to tidy up at the end of the day. We still have a toy box, a bunch of books, play-doh and art supplies in our main floor kitchen/family room. Now that the other floors are emptied out somewhat, I feel like there's room to breathe again. Next job to tackle is organizing the garage.
