Trying to pin down someone to do an inside renovation during the warm season is next to impossible. So I patiently wait. My first choice carpenter was non-committal. But I am a woman on a mission. I want this kitchen/house renovation completed so I can get on with my life as I want it.
So I went searching and found a nice young man who would come in November. In all fairness, he did call me in November and I was so excited. He thought he could do it but in the end...he couldn't. He took a full time job and would only be able to do my work on weekends. My job is not a little one.

Then he recommended a former employer who is a builder. I cannot believe my luck. This (also) young man builds houses and knows his stuff. He has a full slate of work but has no inside jobs. He agreed to take me on. I was his only inside job. The only time he could start my job was if the weather turned cold. He was so busy.
I don't wish any ill will on anyone but I prayed for cold weather. Well, it came. And it came with a vengeance. I now have their undivided attention until the job is almost complete. I am so thankful. And the true bonus is that they are so competent. I am also lucky.
