    Carpenters are starting to pull the "be here Wednesday thru Friday next week" shit on me.

    Told him that if his schedule becomes variable, so does the fixed price we negotiated.

    I cannot find carpenter in my neck of the woods for almost a year. Stone cutters are everywhere, carpenters are NOT.
    Replacing entrance door to our building. It is going to be Wrought-iron lace backed by bulletproof glass.
    Similar design to this. Should cost around 6-7K

    Don't you live in wonderful and safe Europe? Why do you need bullet proof glass?

    Cause it is thick glass, laminated to flexible membranes and the best for keeping the sound out during the day. This house is located on a busy street and would benefit from washable sound reduction barrier.
