Had we been told the REAL story with the condition of this house we would NEVER have come here! Now, we just can't wait to be done!! Day 253 and we just pray we will be done by day 365 with this nightmare.
This week is about FINALLY bringing the laundry area into the 21st century and up to code. When we arrived the laundry area contained my grandmother's OLD washing machine, an almost as old dryer that was not vented to the outside despite an opening cut through the wall, and a fairly new water heater that had been installed NOT UP TO CODE on top of the original base that was now rotting through and home to all sorts of critters. First of all I'm quite appalled that SEARS would install something so poorly and wary of ever using them in the future.
I say "normally" wonderful plumbers because Henry, the estimator was here two weeks ago and we planned this whole project out and booked for the 1st of July. Then after being rescheduled two separate times due to their workload I expected perfection. Unfortunately perfection was not their forte' today. They did not have ALL the parts they needed to accomplish this project according to the original plan so in our opinion they half-assed it and "changed" our original plans for us and we will now be going to Lowe's or Home Depot tomorrow to purchase the parts needed to change the things they did not do properly to get OUR plan back on track:
- elbow and long enough gas line so the line doesn't cut through the middle of the broom closet.
- Elbows and NEW PVC so the discharge line for the pan hugs the pan and wall and doesn't prevent the door from closing as it does today.
