Final Installation

I went to site a few times during the installation; a visual record . . .

Upon delivery, we were told that there was R 2000 in the budget, if we wanted to install the panel . . . Intimidated by the opulence and grandeur of the house, I turned down the offer. Ultimate quote from a professional tiling company was R 20,000!
How I sell myself short!
I never questioned the offer, yet intimidated by the splendor of the project.

Needless to say, I was glad we were not doing the work on site

The pool was filled before the installation!

We have not had access to the house since the installation for final photos.

You are incredible!! Will you ever be allowed in to photograph the final finished installation? Would love to see it...amazing story about the installation fee charged by professionals...Something to learn from that!

Thanks Treehouse Sally, you are very kind!
Clementina, people take advantage of a situation very quickly. Making the work is personal and with that “ownership” comes responsibility; almost always resulting in one doing more than necessary. For that I seldom add a monetary value . . . I am sure you have been in the same dilemma . . .
