Working with builder tip number 1
Call the builder ro workman the day before they are supposed to come do the work. This is to confirm what time they are coming, the name of the person showing up and a to-do list for each room amd where they start the work.
Summarise the work. It sounds obvious but let’s face it, we all make mistakes and it’s better to be sure, so the builder does not show up to a closed door. That would only upset everyone. Last year whem I had my kitchen done, we were about to leave on a Saturday morning, when the plumber showed up! We knew nothing about it. So the key is good communication.
