Re: Laundry Reno — Update #1

Right, so feeling completely #Annoyed. The guy to grind the concrete, didn’t turn up at 8:00am on Monday as organised. Upon querying as to where he was, he was on another job, and he could get to me by 10:30am. Still hadn’t arrived by 10:40am so sent him a text and said “don’t bother”.

 

#Rant: Why do people make a time and then don’t turn up, and then don’t make the second time? Because they couldn’t ORGANISE themselves out of a paper bag and have poor time management skills. I’m the customer, and I won’t put up with this rubbish. #EndRant :smile:

 

So, the new guy who’s going to grind my concrete, would prefer to make one trip and deal with all areas. So, this thread is going to morph into a Laundry, Bathroom, Toilet - floor thread - temporarily 😂

Re: Laundry Reno — Update #1

OK! So today, I had concrete grinder #2 turn up and do his thing. I’m over the moon with the job he’s done, 4mm gone and almost zero dust. I’m not going to attempt posting pictures, as I’ve been having some issues and am awaiting potential solution to that problem.

However, it’s now onwards and upwards on this project, hopefully in a week I shall be able to post some photos of significant progress YAY!!

Hi @Jason - slowly progressing. I’m having a bad time with my hands and wrists at the moment - have to pace myself. The end is in sight, upon which I will bless this discussion with some photos, cheers Deb :smile:

Re: Laundry Reno — Update #1

@Mathy   This is my almost ever time situation with tradesmen.  

 

I book a person for a certain time, they don't show, I message no reply - so I get annoyed.  One guy get this put me off installing an air con for my workshop from November till January.  I mean WOW - WHAT THE grrr

 

Try  being a female, this is what I get all the time, and they wonder why we get annoyed.  What happened to respect?  Would they like me to do their tax returns and say sorry can't get it in by the 30th of June after all, no message till after I've chased and chased -  I will get to it August or Sept...  The day it's due to be lodged...  I always look at life as I treat people like I like to be treated myself....  Is that too hard to grasp?

 

Hope it all went well?

 

Cheers

Old Gal

Re: Laundry reno

Your laundry is basically the same size as ours. Our back door is on one wall and facing it is our door into the kitchen. We’ve relocated our tumble drier outside under the verandah by the back door. I want a smaller tub with a bench over our front loader. We had our kitchen done in 2018 with Kaboodle and want our laundry to compliment it. We have a tiny house that we’ve lived in for over 50 yrs and defiant a modern one. Looking forward to seeing your finished room.
