  • Sunday’s Remodel Update!

    Here is my question for the day. Does remodeling ever go smooth and easy? We’ve hit delay after delay. Snag after snags then add a few more snags. We ordered new carpeting the beginning of April. Granted it’s a LOT of carpet so it had to be ordered. Then this week the carpet arrived. YEAH!!! But, nooooooo because NOW they decided that we need to do an asbestos on the bathroom floor tile. (hold your ears….) )@$@*($@O(&%@% why couldn’t you tell us that when we order the )@&$@((@((* carpeting?!?!? So we send off the tile scraping to the governmental agency.
