If they know the guy that did the work they know what to expect ,
maybe that was it. I have to say we love our contractor and his subcontractor specialists are great! Meticulous and on point.

kitchen floor tile was finished yesterday - minus the grout. Cabinets are due next week. Granite will be 10 days out from cabinets. progress is good.

Other scope of this massive remodel: one of two gas fireplaces is installed and rock is about half done around it. second fireplace rock should start going up this week and gas fireplace #2 is scheduled for end of next week. pulling the carpet from basement and likely going to seal or stain and seal depending on the condition...I think its all stained with glue and crap - so still looking for options there.

How exciting Sandy, you kids are about two months in now. Have you worked up any hatred for your contractor buddy yet? RAY

not at him, but the granite fabricator might need to be flamed. they cut a slab wrong and we lost a bunch of time over that.

some hate for COVID (not new duh) but everything we had to order/buy online has taken forever...we replaced a few doors - still waiting on the last one... it will have been almost 3 months...

the scope grew and was huge - all is all has gone as well as i expected - but after a few large renovations my expectations are lower now than years past.

I am hopefully to fire up the smoker this weekend!! YES! can freakin wait.

for sure - first cook back...likely baby backs, or tritip, or beef ribs if I can find them. honestly I would enjoy anything close to a normal meal with smoked meats!

Wow! That transformation is amazing! Completely different and spectacular. Love the countertops and the flooring and cabinets. Heck, love everything. Enjoy! I cannot let my Wife see any of these, or I'm in deep trouble, lol.
Thanks for sharing.

Fill 5 gallon bucket of hot water from a shower or the water heater and use rubber made tubs as your sink. That way you can do dishes outside or in the garage on a table. Outside in the yard you can use the garden hose to rinse things. I take it that you aren't a camper. I'd take a kitchen remodel over a bathroom remodel any day. Seeing that it's much harder to live without a toilet than a sink. If your contractor takes more than a few days to a week to give you a temporary sink I'd find another contractor.
