Apparently, yelling at Croatian contractors works. He showed up on Saturday with an assistant, and after some excuses and more arguing, he finally conceded and got to work. They worked all day and they finished the basement, checking off each item on my list.
And Brni has finished the bedroom floor. It really looks good and as a bonus, he was able to match the color to the floor in the rest of the house. Something the contractor deemed “impossible.”
Pictures will follow shortly…but first, I need to drink my coffee.
