...or is it more aptly described as a DE-struction zone? While we were away we had asked our building super to replace our bathroom, kitchen and entryway flooring. We arrived home to find nothing done and are now having to tackle the project ourselves. I had planned to repaint the bathroom too.
As of now the bathroom painting is well underway and this morning Jack removed the carpet in the hallway. Imagine our disgust when we saw what lay beneath! How can workers think that it's right to just lay carpeting over top of that much dirt, cement dust and chunks of cement! We know that the carpet in this building has been replaced a number of times since it was built so why has no one bothered to sweep up the construction mess? Sure does explain why our allergies are so bad!
Tomorrow I'll put the final coat of paint on the bathroom and we can start laying the tiles in the hallway. Next will come the kitchen and then the floor in the bathroom. We will not be removing the old tiles because we're pretty certain they are asbestos and we aren't willing to open that kettle of fish. The building people fall all over themselves trying to assure us that they're not asbestos but considering when the buildings were built the odds are they're the bad ones. One more reason to cover them up!
I don't have any pictures to share....still waiting for my computer to be repaired.
