No WIP and dealing with idiots

We are still in the middle of kitchen reno's so there has been absolutely no sewing going on in my craft room. Just incase you are thinking..what you should still have time to sew....well it would be impossible
 
This is what my craftroom currently looks like. Yep its full of  things from the kitchen, living room and office (which became our makeshift kitchen)
 
The end is in site for our reno's, maybe. The contractor is the biggest most incompetent idiot out there. There have been mistake on top of mistakes on top of disasters. One of the last things he had to do was install our new door. He proudly texted me a pic last night and I was horrified to see it was the wrong freaking door!!! We confirmed the door three times before he ordered it and it still ends up being the wrong one. I feel like with the reno we are spending a lot of money to have to keep settling for his screwups. I can live with the door, but only if he gives of 50% off. I think that is fair considering the cost of labour he would be out taking it out and putting in the right one.
 
To top things off this week (the door was the least of the mistakes this week) the electrician calls me and says he goofed and accidentally broke our new cabinet interior. He can glue it back together and the only thing in that part is the garbage can, but again we have to settle for a screw up.
 
It's been a rough 6 weeks having this idiot destroy our house.So far everything has been fixable and things that cannot be fixed (like the huge dent he put in my stove, hole in my wood floor and scratched windows) will have to be minused from the total. Its just been hard going home every night and crying over how he has treated our house. Then i get to stress out all night worrying about having to confront him each morning, while holding a screaming toddler and dealing with morning sickness.
 
God give me strength to get through this!
 
Okay enough whining, thanks for listening. I needed to get that out!!
 
Have a great day

  1. What a horrible experience. Does he need a breathilizer test? Hope things improve.

  2. Wow. At least the end of the reno is in sight, right? Make sure after he is done, that everybody knows not to use him. That is so horrible.

  3. No help, I know, but we've just been there, done that, although ours was our en-suite. You will get through it, and eventually you'll be able to laugh about it. Do you have anything like we have here with our Trading Standards that you can report him to? Sounds to me like you're having to do all the compromising and that's really not fair.

  4. I don't ever think I've heard of a reno that comes in on time and on budget and without at least one screw up - when we did our bathroom, thank God I checked the tile before the guys installed it because, as with you, it was the wrong one - you would think that those types of things would be double (and triple!) checked. Hopefully the bad memories fade as soon as you prepare your first meal in your new kitchen.
