Another PP are those Fucking little 1x1 Glass mosaic tiles.... They are ok to work with in small scale like a back splash or as an accent piece in a large job. I had to give an opinion last month on a job where they decided to do a whole Shower in them. cleaning them was such a horrific pain ,Since the glass tile had a porous surface it had to be scrubbed with nylon brush after 12 hours but not longer than 24 hours after grouting....

I wasn't the builder But I forsee Small claims court in the end of it because the homeowner decided to have the tile cleaned by their cleaning person , rather than pay for the laborer to do it. so when they did it 3 days later and the acrylic set up.... they spent 4 days scrubbing and it still has issues.... I told the guy who did the work I would have refused the work.

Peg, that makes perfect sense ! Your must be really good at what you do (not that there was a doubt lol) . Your artistic flair was very evident and I still dream of your coat. You have an eye for class without over statement...a true gift.

Mrs Sav, I should have explained that better. I love windows in a home and the more I can see the great outdoors, the better. Where I tend to do most of my work, however, the houses are 20' apart on 3 sides. The architects put in windows everywhere, because it looks good from the outside - especially the one over the bathtub. But those windows either wind up looking into the neighbor's windows or onto the siding - there is literally no view through 25% of the windows in the house. There is also no room for furniture!

What I do now that works really well is I walk through with the clients when the house is framed before the windows are ordered. We look through every "window" at the view, and I let them make the final decision. We usually wind up removing a few windows.

Because they are architects and it is their training, they focus on the outside of the home. My training is to focus on the interior, and the best way to use that space.

I hear you Peg, I grew tired of asking anymore I just do when it comes to certain things I just install the extra line and bury it , especially knowing that I will be adding Circuits down the road.

PP: I'm with LOOKING on people that micromanage , makes me insane. If you want me to do leave me to do. If you want to do, have at it , if not back it up buddy and stay out of my way.

Oh and PEG, I get that too many windows makes decorating difficult but I can never have too many lol I need the feeling out outside, inside.

Looking, Because then you have an outlet in the middle of a beautiful custom back splash, and it looks horrid. Depending upon the client/situation, I either use a plug molding under the top cabinet so that there is no transformer required, or I place the outlet horizontally just above the counter top. That way it is hidden by the appliance or accessories, and is not at eye-level. Usually it is a combo of both. All appliances plug in from the bottom, so there is not reason to have the outlets high; especially now with GFI's. It is one of those things that is always done that way because it has always been done that way.

I also do my switches throughout the house at 36" to the bottom of the box; it is easier to switch, the switch is not at eye-level, and there is still room for artwork on a small wall. At first the electricians balked, but now they all do it my way and my client's love it, especially in a house short on wall space because of too many windows - which happens to be another pet peeve of mine here at the shore.

PP- people who Hire me to repair stuff that was messed up by the previous contractor, Then start to tell me how what I am doing is wrong since the previous guy Said It should be done another way..... I stopped just listening to the comments , Now I reply " Why Did you call me to fix it then, if that Was the way to do it?"
