We're never sure what to call these blobs when typing the punchlist. Usually, it's up to me, the "articulate" one, to come up with an appropriate name for these blobular blemishes. I usually say something like, "Remove excess paint drippage from windowsill." However, necessity is not just the mother of invention; it is also the crazy aunt of creativity. Other names that have been offered up for the paint and sealant drippage:
- paint boogers
That last one was offered up by one of our party with small children.
We spent some time this morning backchecking rooms that weren't ready to check at earlier punchlists. Then, we checked the patient wing. For some reason, even it still took about 6 hours to get everything done. By the end of it, we were worn down, which is a hazard. A hazard not just in terms of being tired while driving home, but also a hazard in that one doesn't check things as closely as one should. Unlevel ceiling grid and unaligned cabinet doors sail under the radar, and operation of faucets don't get checked; there needs to be an overt hole in the wall or an entire door missing for something to be noticed. By the very end, my electrical engineer, Ursula, didn't even notice that an entire light fixture was missing in a bathroom. I happened to notice because here salt-n-pepper hair wasn't glimmering like it usually did under the compact fluorescent can lights. I pointed it out, she looked up, and said, "Huh. Good catch, Pix."
However, the building looks fan-freaking-tastic.
