Bad day today. What’s with construction guys anyway? WHY can’t they simply return a phone call? I called 7 different contractors over the weekend and left them both my home and work numbers. Only one guy called back. He said, “I got your message. I’ll call you back at 4pm to set up an appointment.” He never called back. All the other guys I had to call again. Why is it so hard just to set up appointments?

I had one contractor come by this evening to give me an estimate on replacing the subfloors and installing new laminate hardwood flooring. He walked in my house and didn’t even look through the whole house before saying, “This project is too big for me. I’m gonna have to pass.” Wow. So I didn’t even get an estimate from him. My house scared him away. Why does it have to be this hard?

Well I’m not scared. I found out OSB board will cost me around $300 to put down throughout the whole house. So I think I’m gonna do that myself. Won’t be too hard to remove all the particle board and nail down new OSB. It will take time, but I can do it. I just have to rent a dumpster before I get started.
