This has been floor week
Electrician returned this week, replacing the taped over, cracked push button garage door opener on the wall of the garage (see above), installing fixtures (light kits for ceiling of kitchen)
5 ceiling fans), outlet/switch covers, labeling the electric panel, creating a smooth, stainless steel exhaust tube for the dryer (hate those slinky, foil based ones-nothing but fire traps!). He has more to do, and even returned on Sat. He told me to call him when the medicine chests are in, and he will reinstall the existing light fixtures over the sink and address some msc such as switch out the garage light with one that has a motion sensor.
The contractor had access to the home on Monday morning until 12 noon, then was kicked off the job until Friday as every day earlier in the week meant a different coat was going down on the floors (I went with a natural stain and had 3 coats of polyurethane put down to protect it). Contractor had pulled himself off of the job a few times in prior weeks, and was behind, so I was pleased when he offered to work Saturday (yesterday) and had been working on my bathroom tile while his assistant is painting and working on trim.
The rest of the appliances were delivered: washer, dryer and fridge.
Glass guy was out, is repairing the cellar windows: replacing broken glass, reputtying all of the castiron frames. He returns Mon evening after work to install a custom storm panel I had him make for over the large, wide side light of the front door. What the former owner had made was the wrong glass, poorly installed, installed on the INSIDE of all things . . like everything else I saw/see that he touched, it's being redone RIGHT.
