Two and a half weeks into my renovation, and everyone arrives when they're supposed to. The cabinet installers come at 8:45, the designer come at 8:45, and everyone understands each other.
Fortunately, I marked all the boxes the night before; it saved an hour of checking stock numbers against the plan.
The guys take a lot of breaks. They install a cabinet, and then they take a smoke break. They install a cabinet, then take a smoke break. They sit on the deck and chat. But they seem to do good work, so I'm OK with that.
Thing is: they cut out at 3:00 most days. If they worked eight hours, they wouldn't have to be here for three days.
Lookin' good, eh?
