This, This, This, This, That, Done

A Simple Task for a contractor, we thought.
Remove the see-through doorway  to the bathroom, and make a small kitchenette in that space under the stairs please.
Contract in hand, we began.

Um, no.
Not what we discussed at all.
Try again.

Um No, closer, but really? 
Really, what about finishing out the cabinetry to the stairs did you not understand? 

Oh fine.
We're done, go away.

And so we finished the sucker off.
I paid Nicholas and Elaine $5 each to help; I'd contract with them again in a heart beat.

Small guest house, aired out and cozy.
Well, we still have to fix that shower that leaks, even though a plumber inspected it and signed off...
Really, if you want something done right, do it yourself.
But, I'm tired now.
