  1. Not forgotten

    by , 10-14-2010 at 06:02 PM
    No I haven't forgotten about this blog, and it looks like my contractor has not forgotten about me. Tomorrow the electrician is coming back to finally get all the electric in my building in working order. The contractor hired a new electrician, and this one seems to know a little bit more about what the building inspectors are looking for. I sure hope so. I think once the electric is finished, and finished correctly, a lot of other things can progress.

    My neighbor/tenant and I ...

  2. A Drop In The Bucket.

    by , 09-23-2010 at 06:58 PM
    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 ...

  3. Let it be so.

    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.

  4. A disconnected phone

    by , 09-13-2010 at 06:40 PM
    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 ...

  5. Feeling foolish

    by , 09-10-2010 at 05:21 PM
    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, ...
