The saga of our kitchen makeover (do-over, whatever!) continues. The original contractor we had contacted met with us, took our ideas, even had the plastic fabricator company come measure counter tops, then apparently VANISHED for a time. I could not get him to return my phone calls, leaving multiple messages for him about what the next step needed to be. Finally I contacted other companies in the area. 2 were able to come out last week and visit with me, take measurements, and pictures. One of them asked about countertops, which is when I mentioned the company that had been out measure them before. He contacted them about the measurements, but had to find out who the original contractor was as the information was stored under his name. I don't know if the original contractor just decided to call or if the plastic company notified him that someone else was asking about the measurements - but lo and behold - he called and left a message today!
The one thing that was truly annoying is that all he needed to do was let me know it might be longer before he could get to our job or he was not going to be able to work it in at all. Oh well - I guess we'll see where we go from here.
By the way - the crape myrtle bushes are blooming and are absolutely beautiful!
