Bathroom Done

Hi Paul, Keith tells me everything is done and looking great! If you concur, would like to collect balance owed of $6,750.00. Thanks for your business!



My response:

I would have appreciated a final walk-through. I have never had any other work done where the contractor did not have a final walk-through. Maybe they would have caught some of these glaringly obvious issues. Or maybe thats why they didn't do one because the issues existed as demonstrated by the photos below.

For example, the supposed to be rain shower that is now just a leaky cap in my ceiling and the other showerheads are leaking from the bolt where they are connected to the arm on the shower wall. Did no one test them?

These are such obvious oversights that it terrifies me to think whatever less obvious things were overlooked.

Additionally:

1. The door trim is over the position of the light.
2. The window does not fit in the wall and sits above it almost an inch.
3. A piece of floor board in the adjoining bedroom is missing. It was there before they started. Do your guys know where the floor board is?
4. They scratched the crap out of my branch new $1600 dresser. Its frustrating because this happened when they put debris up there and then must have tried to clean it up yesterday by wiping rock debris on the wood. i

I am checking on the repair cost of these today or tomorrow.

I will gladly pay you once you rectify these issues or if you give me a written signed letter stating these issues will be rectified.
Paul

6am

I cannot believe I have a 7am meeting where I meet the CEO for the first time. Why 7am? Who knew 6am was dark.

Tunneling Apple Remote Desktop through Linux Server via ssh

You obviously could just connect the mac computers together via ssh if they were reachable from each other. In this case they are not and there is a linux comp in between. between the client mac and the target mac. Tunneling screen sharing over ssh also makes it secure.

From your terminal on the mac you will be connecting from. I was missing this part before and therefore it was not working.

sudo defaults write com.apple.ScreenSharing skipLocalAddressCheck -boolean YES


From client mac connect to linux server and map your port 6900 to its 5900. Really you could use any ports you want just make sure that you use them in the next command too.
ssh -p 22 -L 6900:127.0.0.1:5900 user@linuxserver

From linux server connect to target mac that you want to view mapping its port 5900 to the mac port 5900. The first port is whatever the second port was above. The last 5900 needs to be that as the mac runs its dekstop screen sharing over port 5900.
ssh -L 5900:127.0.0.1:5900 user@targetmac


From there mac you want to view the other mac on, open the finder's menu and select go - connect to server.

enter address as your localhost and whatever port you chose as the first one in the first ssh command

vnc://127.0.0.1:6900


hit connect

login with the account for the targetmac

from view menu select the display you want to view. From there you should see and be able to control the target mac.

Shower Pan and Threshold Continued

Its starting to be a joke. At least it feels that way. I can't believe someone thought the way the threshold was made would be acceptable. I actually feel insulted that they thought we wouldn't notice or care.

The drop is even more obvious now with the threshold in place.

image

You can see how far the left side (right side of picture as its taken from inside the shower)
image

Here is the right side which is good an normal height like the other two corners.

image

Here is the fucked up one. Look at the difference in height.

image

Just look how much shit they had to shove in there to try and cover up the drop that will definitely cause water to pool there.

image

They tried to use a 1/2 caulk to make this work. Well caulk and some wood and a piece of cement board. It looks insane. Instead of having concrete on stone flush like the other side there is all this other material that will surely degrade at different rates and separate causing space for mold to get trapped etc.

image

The threshold even overhangs by 1/2 inch on both sides which is a major tripping hazard. This is especially frustrating because the guy specifically told me to buy 6inch wide threshold which was extra cost and now not only looks like shit but is a major tripping hazzard. I would have just bought 5inch if he had told me to.

image

Even the ceiling fan is crooked. Its like these people have never seen a right angle before.

Basra in the basement


Poor guy had to move into the basement for a while. With (e:xandra) in the orange room and (e:terry), (e:Joe) and I in the blue room. Both of the other rooms are off limits due to the bathroom construction.

The only remaining options were the red room in the attic or the basement. I tried the red room in the attic for a bit but its so full of tools and far away from kitchen, water, etc.

Having him in the same room as the water heater should also keep it warmer compared to the attic. My only concern is him making the laundry area smell bad.

We gave him a bath today so that's a good start at least. It took all three of us to get him clean as he hated being hosed down.

Roller Skating and Dancing


We went to a techno roller skating party last night at rainbow rink in north tonawanda. It was awesome. The DJs were great and roller skating was way more fun than I rememberrd . It was almost like flying. At first I thought I wouldn't be able to do it but after a couple minutes I was confident enough to dance and skate at the same time. I skated for about an hour and a half but then had to quit because I started to get blisters from the skates.

I want to own a roller skating rink.

So much shit in the app store

Literally. To make it extra weird it is the 23rd app that comes up when you search chromecast in the app store.

Bathroom Tiles


The owber came out and was nice about fixing the floor tiles. He agreed they didn't look right. The workers then came and dug out the tiles that were messed up and relayed them for grouting. They missed whole lot of them so I went through and marked off the ones I have issue with in red. The blue tape is what they fixed. I wish so bad I had just done it myself at this point. I know it can be straight and even as there are sections where it is right and I saw a demo installation of that tile at the time store

To be honest Im still very unhappy about the grade of the shower edge away from the drain on one side but we will see when their is water as the owner seemed to think it would not be an issue.

  • Linnie 10/17 06:57 Hi Neighbors - I just bought a groovy renovated carriage house on Linwood Ave, and I'm so excited to live in our wonderful city! The large house in front of the carriage house burned down in the 70's. An article I found about the property cited that 'Matthew' on this site had posted a series of photos called 'Lost Linwood" (article was from 2012). I thought maybe Matthew was still on this site or perhaps someone could help me find the photos. I'd love to see the original house and carriage house
  • joe 09/12 01:54 well maybe the fall and setting up my computer again will get me to post regularly
