Last week I returned to a house I worked on in 2007, when it was still very much under construction. The homeowners live in California, so this was a vacation home for them. I remember there were no working bathrooms at the time and I had to keep running outside and to a hose to get water to rinse brushes, etc. Although I did quite a bit of work there, I actually never met them, and all correspondence was done via email. Well, finally, we got a chance to meet when I was returned last week to do a little repair work. The house is sparsely furnished now, but there is a full kitchen and some working bathrooms! As you will see from these photos, a lot of finish work, such as trim, still needs to be done.
I was a bit uncertain about being able to match the glazes, since it had been five years and I no longer had these glazes. I had my notes in their file, so was able to mix up new glazes and luckily it was a good match!
Not only did I get paid for this job, I also was given this nice zuchinni for a tip! 🙂
