Sadly though, I am not enjoying these days on the back porch of my house. Even though yesterday was "move-in day" we are still going to be out for at least another week and up to a month. I am so frustrated with the horrendous contractors that our homeowners association selected to "manage" our renovation. When checking in on the progress on Tuesday evening (because to know if anything happened I have to go physically see it-God forbid someone give me a schedule, plan, or communicate what is happening) I noticed that the flooring under the carpet in the living room is uneven and actually trip worthy.
Yes I did say carpet, what happened to the hardwoods? Well, these crazy subcontractors are only out to make a buck and wanted to charge us 3x more than what any other flooring company would to install (on top of what the insurance company was already paying them to put in a hardwood foyer and carpet on the rest of the first floor).
Little did we know at the time that they wouldn't level the sub floor before laying carpet, don't know if they put any padding down first, but from the feel of it they may have decided to scatter rocks around before laying the carpet. Oh yes and the TV cables that we wanted layed under the carpet piled in a corner, that was a nice sight to see.
We will see who wins this battle-later today.
