Substantially Complete

When people ask if the kitchen is finished, I honestly didn't know how to answer. Then our lawyer friend David gave me the legal term - "substantially complete". I think this means you can't sue if you threw them out before they finished. So our kitchen is substantially complete.

Without dwelling on the unfortunate problems that cropped up, which we can't now do anything about, I can honestly say that it looks great. The cork floor is terrific even though it will never lay flat due to the uneven slab on which it was placed.

So Larry and I will finish those last details that need doing. These will all be handled in my lifetime, though not anytime really soon. The before and the after.
