Home Renovations Blog Week 4

After taking another week of holidays we completed the painting and flooring. The baseboards and painting on stairs remains before we can complete the flooring in that location. We had the unlucky 3 surprises this week. After measuring for the countertop we were told that our install date for the counter would be Nov 2, a far cry from our expected date of early August. After some great work by Floform to cut the quartz differently our order was fit with the remaining slab they had. We are extremely grateful for their efforts as we gave our sink and counter top to Restore (Habitat for Humanity). The Restore gives a great option to sending old items to the landfill.  The second surprise this week was a patio door that did not fit.  My wife calls this my $200 mistake as I had indicated it was 2×4 frame not 2×6 frame.  Home Depot accepted the return subject to the $200 restocking fee.  The 3rd surprise was a broken pendant light.  No biggie here, the glass was reordered and will arrive in 3 weeks.

We are back to work this week so Week 4 will see some progress but not as much as the last 3 weeks.  A liveable kitchen is the goal by August, we are almost there!
