Short Term Goals

June 27th, 2020 at 01:53 pm

I added something new to my short term goals (which, as it is turning out, are not very short-term). My kitchen floor tiles are cracking, and one of them actually started to flake yesterday, so it's on my list to replace the tile floor.

Sigh. Vintage homes.

I asked for three quotes yesterday from Angie's List for the ceiling repair. One is local (in my suburb) and has lots of experience working in vintage homes. He also has numerous good reviews. He asked me to send pictures yesterday, which I did. He replied that he got them and would send an estimate shortly. Of course, the estimate may be revised when he looks at the situation in person.

One of the others replied that he works only in plaster -- and I don't want to put new plaster up. I am not trying to do a historical restoration here. The other replied through an assistant that he is taking estimate appointments for the second week in July. He is in Chicago, obviously very busy. I haven't replied yet, because I have a strong feeling that #1 is the right guy.

We had very strong storms yesterday, but it looks like we escaped damage in my neighborhood. But we did have a rainbow!

    Yay on the rainbow!

    Hope the first guy works out and things get fixed. There always seems to be something with a home.
