View Gough's Photo Album My Photos

Two years ago, we got a call for a job in the same situation. OMS cabinet shop way out of his depth. The painted cabs looked a lot like gage ones in this thread. He hadn't been paid the last draw because the HO was so dissatisfied. She called us in to give him (!) a bid to repair his worked.since it was several times the remaining balance, he freaked out. He tried to fix it himself and it looks a little better, but not good enough to get paid.

It was one of those bids that we were unlikely to get and it would have been a ton of hand work. Hardly worth bidding...and certainly not worth bidding tight.
