HGTV does not show and tell you the truth because no one would ever have a remodel...have you ever see this kinda mess when Candice Olsen redoes a room? Have you ever seen dust when Chico the electrician cuts up the sheet rock to install the light Candace found in the ten minutes before a commercial?
Geez the pictures look so much better than the real wall. They look so blue. In real they are covered in a fine white powdery dust. The back splash will remain like this a bit longer. I ordered a piece to go behind the stove and it will not be in until the middle of May. Yes, I know we are still in April.
The day the man repaired the backsplash he left the door open. Have you ever had a mosquito buzzing your ear at 1:27 am? Then the next morning I got up for work looked in the mirror , DANG IT an big zit right on my cheek?...NOT it was a mosquito bite. Wonder if I could take some off his bill for that.
I have no stove, sink or dishwasher and really no sanity either....
Below is a picture of my living room. Camo Man thought it would be nice to give me new floors. Well I arrived home from work and he told me everything in the kitchen, foyer, study,half bath and hall closet had to go into the living room. We went from getting new counter tops to new everything.
Here is reality...it is easier to pick out a new house.
Well golly, nothing like moving all your fine china without boxes..My sister thinks she is a red neck,(http://susieharris.blogspot.com/) well I got her beat. I put all that fine china under my bed. Since this is rated PG13, I told Camo Man we will have to lay very very still in the bed. He should remain on his side, I on mine as to keep the weight distributed evenly. Heaven forbid if the bed would fall on the china. (ladies he did not buy that one).Did I mention this is turning into the money pit. Oh, I forgot to mention money. Well lets save that for another post.
The flooring guy told us to save money we should take up the old floor before he lays the tile... How sweet he even loan Camo Man the tools. Well after 3 hours and he only had 3 foot of flooring up he called the floor man. Floor man said the original floor was put down with the wrong glue. As I type Camo Man is trying to get the floor up with a machine he had to rent. Well the concrete is coming up too... as he looks over at me with a look of what the *** are you doing on the computer.....
Stay tuned when next post will be "Remodeling and IBS"....(just joking)
