Tradesmen – can’t live with em, can’t live without em

April 13, 2007 at 5:15 pm (House renovation)

Bad news:
Our plasterer postponed us twice, and we should have heard from him by now, but haven’t. We really need our bedroom ceiling sorted (along with the electrical chases throughout the house but there’s less of a rush on those). The goal is to get our bedroom decorated and the floors finished ASAP so we can start moving our furniture out of self-storage.

Good news:
Our new builder Jeremy so far is everything we could want and more. What’s painfully ironic is his name was given to us by a trusted source from the very beginning. We didn’t pursue him then because he was described as a “project manager” and we didn’t feel we could afford a project manager + labourers + materials. It wasn’t til MUCH later we learned that he was highly skilled in the various building trades and does the labour himself.

So – he begins work next week. First up: new loft opening, base for the garden shed a and fitting our new back door. Unless the plasterer doesn’t show up, then Jeremy’s task list may shift!!
