The reurbishing guys finished up on Monday. Far Guy was away from home for 7 days and I was away for for 4 days. Originally he said it would take three days and he would have the house completely done. The house has half log siding.
They covered all the windows and doors...when I was here by myself I missed looking outside!
Here is the house after the sandblasting...he used some special kind of glass to sand blast with...the workers wore respirators almost all the time.
Then they applied a couple of coats of stain and then some sealer.
Finally last Monday they removed the coverings from the windows. We have one security camera outside and one inside...so we could tell what was going on.
Here it is completed. Are we happy...not so much. I have several messes to clean up...and the little roof that extends over the air conditioner was left unfinished and was not replaced back properly. They removed that structure to work on the house.
You can see the posts are wonky. For some reason they painted the furnace vent green...who knows why? They removed the Ferris Wheel seat out front and dug up the dirt...not sure why they did that either...they also have stain splatter on my natural color Cedar deck out back.
So I have to sand and stain the posts...bums anyway...and pick up the garbage they left laying around...mostly cigarette butts.
The kicker was the second day they were here I did not lock the door and they came inside to use the bathroom...how do I know this? There was wood dust on the floor...the door stop to the bathroom was moved and the security system motion detector showed me exactly when they were inside the house for four minutes...you can bet I locked the door and set the alarm after that. Yes it was my fault...but bears shit in the woods and so could they.
Would I recommend this company to anyone? Nope.
On the bright side if there is one, he guarantees his work for ten years...I hope it lasts that long as I would just as soon never see that little prick again.
