day four of the remodel.
and all morning i thought it was friday…
so. my hallway floor is gone. the stairs are gone where they’re going to be reshaped. the kitchen has no floor, no appliances except the fridge, and nothing has water.
all i wanted in a refrigerator was the basic model. but the kitchen space is pretty shallow. yesterday i learned that fridges have changed dimensions since the 80s. it is impossible to get a basic model fridge that fits in the space i have. so today i bit the bullet and ordered a very nice fridge at roughly a thousand or so more than i intended to pay for one. will try to make it up somewhere.
walked out of the shop and found my right front tire completely flat. sudden change in plans. called aaa, got the emergency spare put on, was assured i can drive it carefully for a day or so, went to the tire place but had to make an appointment for tomorrow morning.
that settled, i headed for home depot where my mission was to buy a bathtub. had to wait a long time for service as they were swamped. then i managed to choose the one model that only existed at the top of a pile of goods at ceiling height. had a lovely time watching the guy with the crane and playing a name game with little melissa who was helping her daddy shop for ac parts. finally got the tub to the counter, with my instructions from the contractor to put it on will call, only to be told that they wd hold ut no longer than one day. urgent calls to contractor to ensure that he really wd get it picked up tomorrow. it bent his plans some, but he agreed.
i also picked up the 8” faucet set for the longest vanity, traded in the extra 4” set, got a few more deco tiles ‘cause i really think we’ve miscalculated those…..and called it a day.
