It is now 815 am on Monday morning or better known as Day one demolition on my kitchen
Yesterday was busy with doing the laundry to last us for several weeks as well as finish packing up, running errands, etc.
Something told me to get up early with hubby today. Was it the idea that we are presently under a thunderstorm watch (which has just passed) and then a tornado watch until 1 pm. YES. Figured the more little things I got done before the guys got here the better.
As soon as hubby left with the dog at 745, I went to move our son's car behind mine so that he did not get blocked in. While outside, I find the contractors already arriving. We talk and then they figure there is no way they can remove the granite without help from either set of cabinents. So more help is called in. I then ask where is the pod .. answer is " Are you getting one" Yes... that was decided on Thurs.
They talk to their boss and they are told to put everything in my garage. I tell them no way in this world as my garage is already filled with lumber and hubby's bike.
So now, until they can find a pod, the granite from the center island is being laid on the floor in the kitchen against the wall. Thinking.. if it slips, there goes my counter and my wanscotting..
They instead of taking out all the cabinets that were affected by the water, they are only taking out one section to the left of the dishwasher and not the cabinent to the right. Nor are they taking out the othe 4 foot section to the other side of the sink where the water also went.
So now we still could be screwed in the long run unless I speak up as we go. This is why I am not leaving the house. Most likely will have a half assed job.
As I went through my email found one from the General Contractor saying 9 am start on the kitchen and water heater will be worked as need be.
So I can see venting on my part in a few days. I see tears in my future and I see me popping the ativan that my doctor prescriped for stress.
I backed out the room and now here
