So my builder tells me LAST Friday that my dumpster was going to be picked up on Monday or Tuesday.
Wednesday I called the dumpster company myself and asked if he called...he didn't. At any rate, I called them again today and the lady goes on about glad you called, misplaced your info, blah blah blah, BUT: they'll pick it up today.
So I then call my builder to tell him I took care of the dumpster and he goes into the explanation of "Oh, I meant to get back to you... there's only a $40 difference in the bigger and smaller dumpster and I wanted to find out what you wanted to do."
I WANTED TO GET THE DAMN THING PICKED UP IS WHAT I WANTED TO DO!!
So needless to say my garage is full of trash from the week's activities because there wasn't anywhere to go with it which in turn caused my garage door opener guys to cancel because there was too much clutter in the way for them to work.
I am just waiting for crap like that to happen to me when we start to build this summer. Everyone has a few stories like that from when their house was built.
We're still waiting on an estimate from a prospective contractor. He said it would be two weeks...and that was three weeks ago. I've met with him since and he says he is waiting on a quote on the fireplace and a couple other things.
It's always something.
The one thing I like about the contractor we are talking to, is that he lives right next to our 5 acres. So we'd be neighbors. You'd think he'd want to be on top of things and do a good job since we'll be neighbors. He seems like a nice guy and I think he'd be a good neighbor. We'll see how it goes.
