Never Trust a Builder’s Estimate

Posted: May 11, 2010 in Ramblings
 
All they had left to do, as of Friday, was put up the fence.  On Saturday we signed the paperwork to say we agree that after completion, we, and not the city, are responsible for maintenance to the fence and new walls.  At that point they said "On Tuesday they’ll come and finish the fence."  So I was eagerly looking forward to having our fence done today.
Well, eventually around 12:30 some guys showed up and wandered around dreamily for an hour before deciding to do any work.  They cut the tops off the fence posts in the last picture (because the fence is to be slightly shorter than those posts) and mounted a few boards on the outside of the fence, then dreamily put the temporary fence back up and left.  They were gone before Alex arrived home at 3:30.
