Taking out the counters yesterday, I encountered the craptacular work of Jackleg Construction Company:
Not pictured: the cheap linoleum, awful plastering, half-assed replacement of molding with mismatched, improperly sized stock, and the rainbow consist of appliances. As much as possible will be corrected in due course.
Edit 07/22: Okay, the worst was none of this, but the mangled CPVC fittings under the sink: both cross-threaded and patched with plumbers’ putty. I made two extra trips to the hardware store because I thought I had the wrong parts. Had to cut off the old fittings, put on new ones, and wait overnight for them to dry before getting everything hooked up this morning.
