Discussion  - 
 
I just had the displeasure of intervening between a handyman and customer concerning their bathroom renovation. He's done there as of now, and they need someone to come in and redo what's already been done for the subfloor repairs. The plumber refused to install the shower plumbing/Sterling shower unit because it was so hacked up in there. I don't have time to take the job over so hopefully another guy I know will take care of them, they'll meet tomorrow.
I've known this lady for years, she's a retired waitress from a local restaurant, have done a ton of work for her son on several of his properties........ and she calls me to help her out of her jamb knowing that she should have called me originally for the work instead of trying to save money and get some unlicensed handyman to do it cheaper.
For a moment I thought for sure it was going to end violently, threats were made but I kept my cool and got it diffused instead.  He'd already been paid $1000 and wanted another $650 before leaving...and well that wasn't going to and didn't happen. He'd only half demo'd the bathroom and all his subfloor repairs need to be ripped out and redone correctly. 
Anyway, I'm left wondering....why did I even stick my neck out on this? Happy Friday!

Thanks +Richard J. D'Angelo I wish I could say I wouldn't hesitate to do it again. The outcome of this is they ended up using some unlicensed neighbor (the "plumber" that couldn't install the shower first time) They ignored my phone calls after that day trying to check in on whether they were getting it done alright. I really have no idea how it all turned out.
At least the son did call to thank me a few days later for helping her that day. And I know I'll be doing his kitchen and whatever other projects in the future.
I just can't honestly say that I'd get in the middle of other people's poor choices again, after them just making a similar choice anyway and flat out ignoring me after helping them out that day.

It's been updated at a 6.0 What a rude awakening this morning. It shook my house HARD and kept rolling for an unbelievably long time...no damage. Vallejo and Napa got a lot of damage though.

I have my hands full right here, I expect they'll be pretty well fixed up before I clear my schedule. I am curious to see if the phone starts ringing from there, I do have some previous customers there but the ones I know of are still in good shape structurally.

Tile Showers  - 
 
Happened to be picking up some Quartzlock from Daltile yesterday and was told they had Wedi rep coming today to show off their wares since my local Daltile will now be stocking Wedi.  So, tonight I had me some free dinner and a show, Wedi rep building a mock up shower.....my Wedi certification will be sent to Daltile for me to pick up in a few days LOL 
Anyway, I heard they were going to be manufacturing here in the states before long that should help get their pricing down....just thought I'd share that.

I considered the wedi product a few months ago but recently my connections for Noble products are offering me killer prices and Daltile is delivering me reduced prices on bulk purchase of Dal Seal TS.

First day back 5 1/2 weeks post hernia surgery, and not a moment too soon for this shower. Didn't get later photos but we got the marble pan in and rock back up today. Didn't feel a thing til about 2 oclock or so,  there was that subtle reminder set in a little. Yay, vacation is over!!

They're 3/8" and dense. A bit heavier than cultured marble/onyx panels, little tougher to cut too. Nothing 2 guys can't deal with. The couple that I did this for found my site, my suppliers link, and had already knew their color before calling me...no samples needed :)

My van on the gurney headed to surgery. One of the neighbors down the street decided to fire off about 8 rounds Thursday night. Didn't see any damage right after, but van wouldn't start Friday for work. Swapped to truck real quick and found this bullet hole after work....no wonder it wouldn't start. Bullet went right through my main wiring harness on the firewall. Thankfully it wasn't a person, but sure going to make the next week or so a pain in the rear.

$100 deductible comprehensive coverage, yep. Still waiting though, I'll know better on Tuesday after the new wiring harness finally goes in to be sure nothing else got messed up. Taking a loooooong time for what the damage was.

Happy Monday everyone. Seems the flood gates have opened here, getting more leads than I can wrap my head around. Went into this year booked out a few months until a couple weeks ago I was mostly caught up and taking care of little odds and ends that were put off until it was "convenient" besides some things that were on hold til August. Now, I'm suddenly scrambling trying to estimate so much at once while in the middle of a bathroom renovation. I need to clone myself for the next week or so......
Have a great week everyone!!!

Did anyone else work today? Demo'd a small kitchen...mostly by myself.  %#@#&!!! Came home early because it was way too hot in the attic to go up in there, saving it for first thing in the morning. Need to run a dedicated circuit for the microwave and add some recessed lights. Hope you all were smarter than me today.........
