The trash guys. They needed extra money to take away all the extra trash. What extra trash? Enough cardboard to ship an entire kitchen’s and one wet bar’s worth of cabinetry, wood and plaster from the old soffit, and enough drywall to uncover all our kitchen electrical works. Plus three trash bags filled with insulation. And a twenty-plus-year-old microwave oven.
The electrician. He’s still here. We’re still having to decide things, figure out unexpected problems, and make compromises
