8 days to "Jour J" and to summarize: Sh*t is late.
But as French construction projects go, we've been lucky. Saturday FrenchBoy had a conversation with our downstairs neighbors, and to say the least they weren't so lucky. They had more than a few mishaps including pipes being intalled on the outside of walls, and one bathroom being completely tiled with someone else's tiles!
The wife said they had no choice but to move into their unfinished apartment, and for the first two weeks lived with crews of 10 or more dirty construction workers walking in and out of their home all day.
So, I hardly feel like I have the right to complain.
We were scheduled to move last weekend, but that was impossible for two main reasons. One, we have no heat or hot water due to the fact that we forgot to call and schedule it to be turned on. And two, witness the huge gaping hole, where our staircase should be.
I cannot go into the stair fiasco without punching people, so I will just skip ahead to the good stuff.
The Star trek kitchen just got more sci-fi with the addition of the coveted Space-ship oven hood.
Which looks even more sci-fi at night:
Thursday the one missing door, and the stainless steel backsplash arrives and then it will be completely finished. I think.
The guest bathroom:
I don't mean to brag, but the guest bathroom is nicer than the bathroom at the Montreal Sofitel. We basically stole all their design ideas and then improved upon them. Our guests are in for a real treat!
I may have to convince David to switch it and make it our bathroom after all.
So that's that. The stairs are coming Wednesday. And then 2 days worth of cleaning to get the layer of dust & construction grime off of everything.
You can call me a Princess if you want to, but I'm telling you right now. I will not be the one cleaning whatever the hell that is off those windows.
