We received a few more of our appliances today. The double oven shipment was refused because it was the wrong model but the microwave and gas cook top was received.
The stairs received their final coat of lacquer and are just beautiful. They won't let us leave them as bare wood "due to liability" issues. Honestly, covering up such beautiful wood is almost a criminal act. Now that I see how chewed up the treads are from construction I see what "liability" they are talking about...it's having to pay to replace damaged treads. I'm conflicted as to whether or not to just take the carpet runner out after closing.
We got an email today saying our ceiling fans had been discontinued and we were going to have to pick new ones. We really won't know until the new ones go in, if it will be a big deal or not. We had to select from a scanned copy of a photo graph...and the picture was just the fan without our lights on it. I would say that although this "last minute" ordering is good for their bottom line, it is horrible for customer service and stress on our end. We are so close to finishing and closing, I'm over these little things that would have sent me overboard even a month ago. We are certainly overpaying for these fans but I'm not even considering doing a DIY fan install in the 2 story family room. No sir, someone else can do that.
Based on what the PM is telling me...there will be absolutely nothing going on in our house until next week...and there was next to nothing going on today. So now I know why they needed an extra 3 weeks beyond my projected completion date. They were going to take a week off. Bottom line, I may not have anything to write about until next week.
