I had a pretty active weekend, in addition to the Easter plans and Angel Food distribution, I also helped prep my parents kitchen for new counter tops. They ordered the counter tops a couple of weeks ago, and later that same week someone came out to take the final measurements and make a template. They scheduled for the new counter to be installed today, so we had to work hard all weekend to get things ready. Monday we pulled the old counter and sink, expecting a new one to be in place by dinner Monday.
The installers didn’t come at the earliest part of their time span, which is fine because we had some extra things to get prepped like getting a new dishwasher in place. All the extra work to get things prepped for after the installation was done, but the counter top hadn’t arrived. The end of the “we’ll be there” window slipped away, so we called. Bad news, counter top wasn’t coming. The installers said there was a price increase due to a few things being larger than the original estimate (That’s What She Said) and the approval for the increase hadn’t been sent in. Of course no one called about this, so how could anything have been approved?
So now there is no sink, no counter, no dishwasher, well it’s there but without the plumbing it isn’t very useful. I’ll have to spend all day tomorrow on this again, and I’m frustrated, but my dad is down right angry. I have to say, I’ve been on the receiving end of that, so I’m pretty happy that I could walk away when he was talking to the people on the phone.
Every have a remodeling disaster like this? What happened?
