.. and The Joins Stained .. and The Big Sacrifice Awaits

We almost lost Uncle Chong - the principal joiner of Reiki Sanctuary.  To us, and also Chiauw, Uncle Chong is a meticulous joiner.  We have seen his works and he takes extreme care about details and kinda fussy to technicalities.

Wardrobe done by Uncle Chong in another project:

Ah, it sounds almost like Chiauw!  And, indeed, when we put the two of them together, they often engage in friendly arguements - always!  Uncle Chong is the practical guy who needs a detailed drawing so that he can exercise precision with the final products.  Chiauw, on the other hand, is very architectural and she needs exact measurement before she can lay the final products into a drawing. 

As the renovation is slowly taking shape, and new ideas or site technical problems cropped out, Chiauw feels the joinery drawings can only be finalised when all the wetworks are completely done.  But Uncle Chong insists on a drawing now so that he can start with all the wood works. 

And so, the drifts have started *sad*.

Uncle Chong has been awarded with our joinery works right from the very beginning of our renovation project and had been briefed on layouts for the whole house - the location, the type of wood and wood finishes.  We have a lot of joinery works in this house, even the TV consoles and bed frame and its side tables are to be customed made by Uncle Chong.  Simply, Uncle Chong understands our basic requirements.

We like both of them.  We strongly believe that each one of them will give us the best for Reiki Sanctuary.  But, right now, we are smacked in between.  Uncle Chong wants to quit and Chiauw is not going to heed.  As long as Chiauw is not going to give him the final drawings, Uncle Chong cannot deliver the goods by early September.

Chiauw, however, strongly feels that she can only finalise the drawing by end of this week when all the false ceilings and tiles/teakwoods are completely installed.  She feels that Uncle Chong can already start with the small parts based on the earlier drawings for the doors, kitchen cabinet drawers, study area etc.  But Uncle Chong has a different work style - he prefers to focus on one project and complete it before he takes on another one.

We have no choice but to interfere in their differences now.  As much as we want to move in by the first week of September, we are now making big sacrifice to move in on the third week [earliest] or end of September [latest].  We hope this will give them back their many years of business relationship.  We feel that the only way not to stress the two of them anymore, we have to extend our deadline.

Definitely, we will suffer some inconveniences especially when many things have been arranged for early September.  Now we wonder, will we be compensated?
