House log - 02/11/21

November 2nd, 2021 - House(2 mins)

Today I went to the house with two items in mind:

  1. Wait for the guy with the digger to get the driveway started and
  2. Be present when the electrical distributor would come to move the meter inside the house.


The guy was supposed to come at 07:30 in the morning, but at 07:00 I got a call that he was already there. So I had to rush to get there and call our guy to let him know. So at 07:30 the work started and it was finished in about two hours. Cool! We both thought it’d take longer.


The distributor was supposed to come between 13:30 and 15:30. Unfortunately, around 15:30 I got a phone call that they were at the corner of the road. When I went there, I couldn’t see anyone and a bit later I got another phone call saying that the workers left and they would come ‘tomorrow’. Enter panic mode.

I called the distributor and confirmed (sort of) verbally they would indeed come the next day. As we did not get a confirmation, we were still a bit stressed.
