Weak Link

Progress on the new room has been steady, until the painters did not arrive last week as expected. Not on Wednesday (truck trouble), not on Thursday (sick), and on Friday, only one showed, to paint the trim.

Fortunately, they arrived bright and early today, and finished up just ahead of the electricians.

The new room is "oatmeal" while the laundry is "khaki" and the trim is "architectural off-white".

My daughter picked the colors and they look great. Even the painter was surprised impressed.

I splurged a bit on the ceiling fan (light kit yet to come)...

... and cheaped out on the laundry ceiling light fixture.

So far, so good!

What's left? The drywall/paint crew need to fix the drywall around the attic entrance and paint the outside of the French doors, the floor is scheduled to be installed Wednesday, and then the heating guy needs to appear with some registers. Oh, and I guess I will need to pay for all this.
