Maybe, just maybe.

Bill/overcast and cold.
We just might be in the home stretch today. Yesterday, I called the owner of the construction company my insurance company hired to discuss our situation. He told us that they still needed the “work order” signed and to feel free to cross out anything we didn’t like. That was fine by him. Putting the shoe on the other foot, I requested a letter from his company stating that we were not financially liable for any of the repairs that were made after they broke the copper water line. That was agreed to and a letter was emailed to us later stating just that and a signed copy was delivered to us this morning when the workman showed up to finally install the vinyl floor. He was told to make sure he had the signed “work order” in his hand before starting any work. By the time we were done crossing out all the provisions on it, you would have thought it was a redacted file from the CIA!
The workman has already pulled out the washer and dryer and is now about to cut the vinyl floor after taking numerous measurements of the room. This is the third attempt at getting the floor in. The first time, it was ordered wrong, the second was cut wrong by the workman and I just came back from outside where the workman is cutting the newest vinyl to make sure he cuts it right this time. Measure twice and cut once. Lots of the woodworking project I’ve done, I’ve measure three or four time. Paranoia is my friend!
The glue that holds this new flooring down takes between 24 to 48 hours to cure so they will have to come back either tomorrow or Saturday to put the washer and dryer back in. I made sure to read the can the glue is in last night as I figured they would be trying to move the appliances back in immediately(which is what he’d planned on doing). We made sure to do our laundry late last night so we would be ok if this went sideways again.
So now we sit back and watch and see what happens. I’ll let you know.
