Finding that painter
As regular readers will know we've been working on this house where we are for some time now. Our problem has been that we've not been able to simply turn around to the professionals. For where we are they don't exist. Not in the same way that they do in other places.
For example, take Des Moines. If we had been there we would have been able to use this guy, the Des Moines Painting people. We couldn't, because we weren't there, but there's a certain part of me that wishes that we were. That we could move the whole house up to where we could get decent, honest, hard working guys (or, to be honest, guyettes) to do the work for us.
Instead, of course, of the appalling mess that we actually did get. But that's another matter.
Sadly, that isn't possible, that we get the work done where there are the people who will do the work well, for a reasonable price. But don't you just wish it were?
Or , alternatively, don't you just wish that there were such honest and reasonably priced workers where you live? We certainly do where we do, that's for sure!
