And she's self taught!
No one showed up to work on ANYTHING for over 3 weeks. Let me clarify that. There has been very minimal progress made SINCE Christmas - so snail's pace for 5 weeks but NOTHING FOR 3 WEEKS. A man hung some shelves in my pantry about a week after Christmas. He started to construct a custom hood that was horrible. I asked him to stop.
Oddly enough when the kitchen designer (aka the owner's daughter) asked me what kind of hood I wanted, my only specifications were: not boxy, not resembling another cabinet, still shaped like a hood with an angled front. Translation: what he was building was all wrong.
This is one of the times - and there have been others - when the owner's words haunt me. 'And she's self taught.' That is what the owner shared with me when he told me that his 20-something year old daughter was working as his kitchen designer. The statement made me cringe. Not a positive selling point. I had already hired him. I hoped for the best. This is not where the story ends . . .
