Remodeling at a Standstill

Not much progress has been made in the remodeling department. Still waiting for the contractor. He did come and put my French doors in but that was all. He was supposed to come Tuesday and was a no show. I told my husband, he needs to keep calling him. All we need done is the plumbing and the drywall and texture. My husband ended doing a lot of the work these last 6 weeks so there really isn't that much left to do. If the contractor doesn't show up, I guess we will have to do the rest ourselves. We are going to put in the laminated wood floors and the tile for the bathroom floor and shower ourselves. There is still a lot of work to do but can't do anything until the contractor shows up.

Meanwhile, I would like to buy plane tickets for my in-laws soon since the fuel costs are rising but I can't because we have no end date for this project to be done. My small bathroom is 1/2 way ripped up but can't finish it until the master bathroom is done. It's all very frustrating.

Oh Lord. What is it with contractors? I never knew until all these home shows came out how often contractors don't show up. What the heck??

Well, I know exactly how you feel!! We've spent years and years on our house. My husband has done most of it. If it's any consolation, it all went horribly wrong when the contractors stepped over the threshold!! My husband now does everything!
