Well the workers did show up for work today. Except for the fact that they said they'd be here at 8 a.m. and they didn't come until 10:30 a.m. I am quite happy with the work they accomplished. I know it's a drop in the bucket compared with what still needs doing, but at least the contractor seems to be trying to finish this project.
I often lay in bed at night and imagine this thing going to court instead of it actually getting finished. So the fact that something got accomplished
Today, I actually saw my contractor. He had a worker up in my attic, and they were checking things out so that some work can be done tomorrow. He also mentioned that he wants to get the electrician and the heating guys back in so they can finish up, and we can get by the first inspection for those areas.
Let it be so.
When I came back from my Wisconsin vacation, both Kathy and my tenant Diana told me that the Contractor's business phone has been disconnected. I think they both believe that this is a sign that the contractor is going to ditch me permanently.
Today, I called the number, and it is indeed disconnected. I then called his cell phone and I actually had one of the longest conversations that I have had to date with my contractor.
I need to start listening to my gut on this
This entire attic project has left me feeling very foolish. I haven't wanted to contact a lawyer because of that feeling. The only lawyer that I know is the real estate lawyer who handled the closing on my house when I purchased it. He also drew up my husband's will and mine.
Tonite, I decided to google his name, and there he was. Same office where I met him about 25 years ago, and have since visited a few times.
I guess it's time to not worry about feeling foolish,
I'm not sure that I can keep this promise to myself, but I have decided not to tell anyone when my contractor contacts me. Since he is slow and mostly unreliable, I have been caught with egg on my face more than once.
I sent him an e-mail yesterday and he did get back to me this morning. I have decided it will be just a "one on one" communication from now one.
That will provide me with the least amount of stress, and maybe one day I can finally post that
