House of Pain
Saturday, December 06, 2014
I finally have a chance to write a blog. Yea!
As most of you know, we are building a house. It’s been a very long, very rocky path, but last week showed some progress finally. It had been a while since there were so many people up there working. I'll try to give more details soon, but here’s the short version to keep you posted as to how it’s going and why I wasn’t on SparkPeople much. .
Here's a short rundown on the subcontractors:
The close circuit TV installer isn't done after five attempts.
The cabinet installer almost quit, but changed his mind.
The countertop installers were on vacation until today.
The plumber quit and went back to working with his dad.
The new plumber just started up again yesterday (luckily, he’s very good).
The electrician was arrested and is awaiting trial.
The electrician's assistant did a couple day's work on his own and is now nowhere to be found.
The new electrician is "doing a favor" for the old electrician's boss.
Those are the reasons right now as to why we're calling it the "House of Pain" instead of "Raven Palace".
