Upcoming work

The contractor called me this morning--well, I'd called her to mention that the work on the pocket door may have loosened the shelf supports in the pantry and gotten her voice mail, so she called back. She'll have the shelf supports checked out. Collapse )

Aaaaiiieeee!

My coffeepot has no power! The circuit to the guest bathroom didn't get reconnected today, so no light, no fan, and no outlet. Collapse ) I can wash dishes by the hall light, but the coffeepot will have to move for the night. To somewhere. Can one more thing fit in my bathroom?

Maybe the cat food dishes can go in the cabinet for the night, and there will be room on the counter...

Today's work

Oh, the status report: more electrical work today. Mostly I noticed (other than the lack of power to the coffee pot) light switches that moved, and they've removed a couple of old fixtures and put in temporary fixtures instead. It's an adventure trying to find the right switch, especially since they leave a few lights on every day when they leave.

I wonder if they've figured out that the switch on the wall beside the picture window at the front of the house controls the outside pole lamp at the far end of the garage, on the side? Took me weeks after I moved in to work that one out.

The contractor told me that the new pocket door location at the guest hall used to have a pocket door--the framer found an old door casing in the wall when he was going to put the new one in. Life's a circle...
