Messy Workmen

Hiring an electrician?

I hope you like cleaning up after them – because they won’t!

I measured an under-construction home in the Heights for wallpaper today, and found messes like this under EVERY electrical box.

Leave Your Shoes At The Door And You’re …. Half-Way Good

Today I worked in an under-construction home, and, once the new floors are in, it’s pretty customary to have workmen remove their shoes. I liked that this contractor was considerate and removed his shoes before entering the house.

But, geeze, can’t you put them to the side and out of the way, so other people can get in and out the door? !

Just one of the small details that makes women better suited than men (in my opinion:) ), for tasks that involve care and attention to details and forethought and whole-picture thinking – like hanging wallpaper. 🙂

101 Things to Do With Plastic Sleeve Wrappers from Wallpaper Rolls

The water is shut off at the under-construction home where I am working this week, plus there is no electricity, so lighting at night is bad. So I have been unable to properly wash my tools and paste roller as I normally do at the end of each day.

Here is a good compromise … The wrapper from a roll of Thibaut wallpaper I am working with is just the right size to slide my wet paste roller into. This will keep it clean, and prevent it from drying out overnight, so all will be ready to go when I get to work in the morning.

Oh, yes, and they’re handy for keeping your TV remote control clean, too. I use blue painter’s tape on the back to pull the plastic tight.
