Morning Scratch human
Cat House Hotel vacation update: Because of the work to our home, Bogdan, Sara and Kat 3 may be at the hotel for as long as another two weeks. Bogdan and Kat 3 are fine and enjoying themselves. I'm worried about Sara, because she hardly ever leaves her safety spot under the blanket in the basket. I hope to visit them soon, but I'm not sure that will be doable until next week. I miss them a lot.
Kat 3 preparing a few weeks ago for the Cats of the Household Monopoly Championships, which has yet to be scheduled. Here, she is making sure the hotels are not rigged. 'I don't want a repeat of the problems at the Scrabble Championships!' Kat 3 said.
While they are there, however, they will get some special spa treatments, including a nail clipping! I'm excited about not having to enlist the man for help in that task anytime soon.
Here's some photos of the house/Morning Scratch facility. We aren't allowed to enter the living/kitchen areas because it is cordoned off with plastic (hence the poor-quality photos taken through windows). The plastic kept the bad mold spores in the immediate area when cleanup was taking place. They also cleaned the air in the house with a HEPA filter.
Floors are up in the kitchen (apparently the mold beneath the floor was disgusting), and portions of drywall were removed to see if mold grew there, as well. You can't see it here, but parts of the cabinets were removed, too. We got mold test results today, and apparently the remediation removed the mold! Next up: Putting everything back to new.
The insurance company is taking care of all of this and we are being told that when work is complete, insurance representatives will contact us about subrogation, so the builder will have to pay (as it should be). Other problems the builder has not fixed we are going to fix so that we can FINALLY just live in the house. We'll then take him to small-claims court. We found out today he is building more houses. I really don't want to say his name here, but if you are buying a new house on the Central Coast, beware!!
Here's the dining/living area. Our new bamboo floors will hopefully go in May 7. Before that can be done, all the work in the kitchen on drywall, cabinets and plumbing needs to be completed.
Thanks for reading. The fun will return soon!!
