Cue the Tom Petty and the smallest violin in the world…
After leaving a meeting with our contractor a few weeks ago we were under the impression we would be breaking ground any day now. So, naturally, in my mind I was already moving in. Pottery Barn is having a sale – we need to go get a couch! NOT.
Turns out, we have until November 1st to look forward to – and a terrible winter (Polar Vortex part 2) that should surely bring about buckets of excuses as to why the house will not be finished on time. Gotta love winter in Chicago.
We have been under contract since April and will be breaking ground in November. Seven months of deliberation and anticipation building is KILLING ME (and probably Matt since this is all I can talk about).
So when we were supposed to have our follow up meeting yesterday, which was changed to today, and then cancelled and pushed back five more days, you can imagine the steam coming out of my ears. We are trying our best to keep a positive relationship with our contractor, but man he is not making it easy. Anyone have tips on how to politely keep your contractor on schedule? Me and Stephanie Tanner are all ears.
