Danny spent the day fixing the guest bedroom floor and doing and more extensive float in the kitchen. This incurred, of course, another small change order for the additional float material and labor involved. <grumble> He also finished installing flooring in the master closet and hallway closet.
As he was leaving, Danny mentioned that the Artisan guys would be here in the morning to sand the floor in the guest bedroom, and so we’d need to move the big wardrobe/armoires out of there. This was completely unexpected to me, because in my mind, that was not part of the scope of work. I called up David Bailey at Artisan to confirm this, and then I called up Cliff, who also confirmed it. (I also spoke to Cliff about the shower hot/cold control being reversed, and that it gets cold after 10 minutes. He said he would tell the plumbers to go and fix it.)
I expressed some consternation at this, because:
- I thought I had made it quite clear to Cliff, early on, that we didn’t have the money to do any additional work on the guest bedroom; and
- NO ONE MENTIONED TO US THAT THIS WAS HAPPENING, AND THAT WE’D HAVE TO MOVE EVERYTHING OUT OF THE ROOM
If it hadn’t been for Danny casually mentioning it in conversation, I would not have know about it. Jose, if he knew about it, certainly didn’t bother mentioning that we’d need to move the heavy armoires out of the way. Cliff seemed to be quite aware that this was going to happen, but almost certainly didn’t remember that there was heavy furniture in the room still.
So, after dinner, Crystal and I got out suitcases and garbage bags and started packing up all the clothes that had been in the armoires so they would be a little lighter and easier to move. My plan is to enlist a couple of Jose’s guys in the morning to help us move them into the sunroom.
