The cupboards are pretty, but they are a bit high... I need a chair to reach anything!
Cooker was out of stock, will be delivered later.
I could kill for a hot pasta...
Yesterday I have been busy till after midnight (third time this week) unscrewing all the screws that fixed the cuboards to the wall and pushing them over 1 cm off the wall and then trying to refix everything. More or less succeeding. The contractor sent a 21 year old kid, he has been working this job for 5 years already, he's very good, fast and neat, but he doesn't think of everything and yesterday after putting in all the cupboards and the equipment he discovered that he had put the oven too close to the wall and the door won't open after the tiles are put on the wall, beause they will add 12 mm thickness. It was 16 hrs in the afternoon and he went home, and so I have been working till near midnight straightening it out.
And today (after sleeping till 2 am) I have gone to the Do-It-Yourself store and bought glass wool insulation and have been stuffing it between the cupboard and the wall... something that should have been done earlier but the kid forgot or didn't think it important. All in all it is really coming along. I am hoping to get a bit off the price if it gets finished in half the time. The tiles I want are crazy expensive, and I am supposed to pay for them myself, but if I push things along a bit - and get him to make a few more mistakes that I can correct - maybe I can get them to gift those to me...
