We put the tree up.  I was late getting it up.

 David actually started painting the room before I got the tree up.  The wall behind the tree is the new color and the other side is the old.  It totally changes the room.  Once I have some free time and David finishes the walls, he gets to start the ceiling and then we both will work on repainting the baseboards and crown molding.  I am sick of all the white so the baseboards and crown molding is going to be a dark brown when I finish.

House Repairs continued

Day 7 - We came home to find that the had finished painting and left.

I waited a couple of days and did not hear from anyone about coming out to clean up, like I had originally been told they would do.  I called their Birmingham office and was asked why I needed someone to come clean up.

How/Where should I start. First off, I know my house is not spotless, it never will be, but come on now, it was never this bad.

Guess I will start with outside - front of house - insulation/dry wall ground into the front porch - they mess in the yard was taken care of by the winds and brief rain showers we have had in the last month.

 Marks on the front door (didn't think to take a picture of the dead bolt inside where they have what looks like plaster on the knob)
this is on the floor just inside the front door.  They tracked and ground drywall into the expensive rug in the living room.

There is drywall, etc on the steps

this one has blue paint that the painter was claiming was dog poop

   Upstairs bedroom floor has paint that they painted the hallway with
 Drops of paint down the hallway on the hardwood


 Assuming this is plaster or mud, but this white bump was never there before

 They swept the insulation along with anything that was not picked up into Xander's bedroom floor

 More mystery drops

Drywall dust in cracks of sitting area floor in Master Bedroom
That looks like mud/plaster on my white marble threashold into bathroom from sitting area

 I ran water without putting the stopper down, walked out of room while water heated up and came back to over an inch of standing water.  It took almost 2 hours for it to drain!!! NEVER had this problem before!
