I work in the flooring business and hence the nickname. Have just bought a new home (8 years old) the idea being it would be a lot easier on my husband who has had some health issues. Needless to say, the house needed some renos--First the tile in the kitchen and family room--over Easy-Heat so it would be nice and toasty--works great but the installer fron hell did the job--Oh well, I'm in the trade and I can always use the pictures as a how not to example. More fun--363 sq. ft. took 18 days and a helper 29 hours! Oh where was my Sunset book on how to tile! Pipefitters came to put in gas for the BBQ and the patio heater-a complete day and holes drilled in the foundation going nowhere.
Today the hardwood floors were to go in. First quality select, prefinished--but get this-the stuff is 1/16 inch different at each end so has to go back, be reshipped, be reacclimatized and then it can go in.
Painters are due in a week--trades are tight--Can"t even guess what will happen there!
Stress free--I don't think so--I'm doing 4 drops of Bach Flower Remedies to combat stress but I'm thinking of 4 ounces of gin taken every four hours. This is really getting hard to take in stride. Make me feel better--tell me your story.
