Today has been a better day on the contracting front! I had a meeting this AM with the "Plumbing Man Boss Himself". Tim is a really nice guy-but also a really busy guy. He came out and we made a decision about the manner in which we will run the gas to the kitchen. Hopefully they will be out tomorrow (if it doesn't rain) to do just that.
The electrician came back and we are ready to go on the pre-electrical part. I talked with the cabinet installer and we made some decisions about how to correct the pocket door dilemma. In short, the kitchen planner did not realize there was a pocket door between my kitchen & dining room, since I keep it open most of the time. This was a problem since we moved the location of the stove and the door was now interfering with the lines for the stove. LONG story short-I figured out a way around it and they all seem to think it will work.
I went back -IN PERSON- no telephone call, to the plumbing store to see why the sink that the man told me a week and a half ago would be here in two days was not in. When he started looking and said it should be here according to our records, I nicely told him I would wait while he made some calls to see where it was. NOW it will be here tomorrow.
As I write I have a call in to the Hardware store to see why the cabinet hardware is not here. As soon as I finish this post, I will be on the phone with my carpenter to see why he has not torn out the old utility closet.
Call me "A NAG", but I am always nice about my nagging!
