Four More Days...Please!
Nine and a half weeks ago I completely tore down three rooms of my home (kitchen, dining room and laundry room) because I was preparing to get new flooring in those rooms. That means all the furniture, appliances and everything in those rooms got moved out so the new flooring could be laid. That also means everything in those three rooms had to be emptied (most of it went into boxes) so I could get all that stuff carried out and put into other rooms of my house.
So here it is almost 10 weeks later and I'm still living with most of my house torn apart.
All kinds of problems have arose. First the guy that measured was new and he made a mistake. He also did not mention there was a certain type of flooring which COULD NOT be used in my old farmhouse. Well guess what type I chose?
When we had the washing machine unhooked a water line broke. All three rooms were filled with about 3" of water before that got stopped. The installers would not lay the floor for at least another two weeks because all the old flooring had to removed first and then give the floor time to dry out.
Then I do have chemical allergies so I had to be sure the type of flooring I chose did not have certain chemicals in their construction. Also the underlayment and adhesives had to be safe. Someone made a mistake there and when the second choice arrived it was not safe.
Somehow this whole project seems to have been doomed to failure. But also this thursday and friday there is appointments both days to get the new flooring put in.
So by Saturday I may once again have a washer and dryer. I may have a refrigerator again, plugged in that is and actually back in the kitchen. I can actually use my stove or oven again as needed. I will have to empty a lot of boxes first but I should be able to find what I want when I want it.
My "camping excursion" in my own home should be done...Please!
