coupla short weeks ago I get a call from a designer I been hoping to work with.
she’s in a bind.
her latest project the HO’s picked out their own tile guy.
he bids, everythings set … then he disappears.
so … she calls me.
she’s stuck … deadlines … and set budgets.
can I get close to both?
I look … both look slim. We discuss … I take 2/3rd’s of the project, as the final deadline looks too tight for comfort. Money looks decent …
so … line up another tile setter. We decide starting today … Sat … instead of Mon … will buy us the time we need to make it a semi-comfy fit.
he also lines up his work partner and his labor kid.
so this morning … we all meet at the site. Ready to hit it hard.
job foreman comes out …
Uh … not ready for tile!
they did some fancy gypcrete over the radiant.
gypcrete guys told the heating guys no need for heat.
so … it’s still wet.
and I got 3 guys standing around early on a Sat Morning.
decide since they are actually there … let’s stock the job and finish that one lonely mud bad. And on Monday tile that one lonely shower.
then … I dunno.
maybe come back in a week when reality lets us actually got to work?
and for this … I stayed sober during the Pen’s Game!
at least I ended up making the Mother’s Day picnic?
and still gonna cash that start check.
