does it ever end…

Shop down III http://lumberjocks.com/topics/54543

Ok, I am at this moment close to explosion, so I should not make a post…
Today I got a mail, that they cant put the floor we have agreed due to moisture in the concrete.
They have had all doors open even it’s winter, this while a de moisture machine have been running for no reason and the heaters have been running full speed for the birds…

So agreed was next Friday the 20, now they talk of 8 weeks delay worst case.
No matter what I cant get my tools from the storage before next year.

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

I’m trying to stay positive and make a compromise tomorrow, now I better just watch some TV and drink a scotch.


Workshop…
Still some way.


Did not help to turn around.


Bathroom now with tiles.
This is wonderful news.


Lightens up the room.


Kitchen self level floor is in place, so things can happen fast.


Looks fine yes.


Backroom also ready for floor.


Smiles.

The good news is I will get a white oiled ash floor instead of the darker oiled oak.
Always look on the bright sides of life – tralalalala…

Best thoughts,

I hear you. I would be just as anxious!!!!!!!!What floor will the put in due the moisture in the concrete??

I hope you are not paying the utility bills on that. It cost a lot to heat the trees and the outside!!

Best wishes , my friend. Scotch sound good or Crown Royal on the rocks!!..............Jim

It’s frustrating but I’m sure the wait will be worth it. The shots you posted already show how nice the future will look! hang on in there.

I know how you feel Mads. That is a real shame. On the bright side the scotch might be a good substitute since it is the season to be jolly.

Thank you all, your words, they bring back the smile and to keep the head up.
Just spend a long day finding an alternative and did!
Found a massive floor that are mounted on braces and so can be put on a moisture barrier.
The contractor have agreed and we van get it delivered he says.
This should mean we are back on schedule.
So yes magic do happen, when we just make it.
Cheers and a wonderful weekend to all of you.
