On Monday the drywall crew came back to texture the walls, but after texturing they "forgot" to reinstall the recessed wall-cabinet they'd removed last week. After a minor kerfuffle with the company (they said they didn't install cabinets; I said they were the ones who removed it in the first place) they finally came back out this morning and put it back up, patching the drywall around it. I suspect that my lack of payment to date was a motivating factor for them.
Yesterday night we primed the ceiling by the romantic glow of our halogen worklamp, and we should have the ceiling completely painted by tomorrow. We can't paint the walls until this new drywall patch dries, so wall painting will happen this weekend.
