And so a two-year saga comes to an end. Water damage from (a) outside storm pipes not draining properly and (b) the upstairs neighbor’s leaking pipe led to the destruction of walls, the floor and two cabinets in our little Austin condo.
This occurred before Austin’s famous Big Freeze of 2021, after which it took many months to find a contractor who had the time and inclination to take on the small job.
Will tore up all the flooring and replaced the drywall. He and I picked out tile last October and a new floor was installed throughout the entire 640 square feet of living space.
Finding a contractor and having that contractor return my calls was a challenge. After three months I finally texted the head of the company and asked him to assign another project manager, one who didn’t lie, didn’t blame others, and actually responded to texts and emails. He did so–promptly.
Which I appreciated.
And check this out! I had pull-out shelves installed so we wouldn’t have to get on our hands and knees to see what was in the back of the cabinets.
I am seriously in love.
