Schaefermeyer Home Addition Vlog #38

Today I set up the camera after talking with the brick mason for about 20 minutes.

We talked about his company, how long he's been a mason, I asked if he knew my old back door neighbor growing up (Gene Tidwell).

Because of my experience with the sheet rock guy the other day, I specifically asked him about doing he time-lapse video.  He said that it wouldn't be a problem.  Then I leave to work and he walks over and turns the camera off!  ARGH!!! SO FRUSTRATING!  Why not just tell me that you don't want it to record you!

This was November 3, 2015.  This is the second day of this crew hanging sheet rock. Some people don't want to be videoed!  I understand his feelings but, I wish he would understand what I'm trying to do with the videos.

Brittney helps out with the VLOG today and takes you on a tour of the inside.

Ali, Kacy, and Shadow make their appearances today as well.

Today another crew showed up to do the sheet rock.  They were both nice guys.  One of them obviously didn't like being involved in a time lapse video!

They did a really good job of matching everything up and making it look good.

Today they prepared for sheet rock.

Because the trusses were wrong they had to shim them down.  They also had to re-locate the electrical line that was in the existing wall.

At the start of the video I had mentioned how I would have ran the wire.  At the end of the day I was upset when I came home to find what I did!

How is it that the general contractor doesn't check these things to make sure everything works.  Why should I be the one to have to find these things and get them done right?  Didn't I hire you to do this?

What am I paying you for?

This was a pretty good day.  They hung the sheetrock in the basement, office and loft.  They also took down the kitchen wall.

There is a pretty funny part in this video which I'm still not sure how somebody does it!

The work that happened today wasn't caught on camera due to not knowing what was going to happen.

As you can see in the thumbnail, I let the kids color on the wall before the tore it down!  They had a fun time doing things that they know they aren't supposed to do.

This was October 26, 2015.  It took some time to get the cameras setup to video this.  I'm happy with the shots.  They blew in the insulation because they don't have access to blow this in after the sheetrock gets installed.

We got Aaron on video telling us he would be cutting in Mason's window for his bedroom tomorrow. That would be October 27th.  Needless to say even on November 4th we still don't have the window cut in.

This is really frustrating because we are paying him to do the work and it's not happening.  It's frustrating because I know that I can do the work myself.  But I'm paying him to do the work!
