Again, we had a bit of a stressful weekend, trying to problem solve something we never had to. At some point, we will learn to trust the professionals.
We had what I will call a “wonky wall”. It’s the support wall for the big beam in our ceiling that allowed us to have the open concept we will soon enjoy.
The very last stud that was put in the support wall was really twisted. The boarders followed the twisted stud when they put up the drywall, which was then taped.
Bill left a note by the wall for “Pete the amazing”, asking for his advice. Pete was in today mudding and sanding, and when I arrived at the house at noon he had already fixed it. The man is truly an artist. I gave him a big hug. He said he first noticed it on Friday, and “once it’s seen, it can’t be unseen”; there was no way he could leave it like that. I’m verklempt yet again.
Here’s Pete at work tonite.
The big surprise today was a call from our flooring company saying that the Tiler was on his way to install the shower tile. What?! I’m not ready for him! I checked with Pete, and he said it would be ok. Turns out they’re working great together. Igor is new to me, and another artist/tradesman who takes pride in his work. He was excited to show me at the end of the day how he patterned the tile. Tomorrow the spacers come out and he grouts.
first pic is the Schluter tile back taken at noon, next 2 pics are near the end of day.
So exciting to see finishes happening! I really hope the next few weeks fly by.. I’m really getting excited now to see the finished product of my hopes and selections, and how they all fit together.
