Warning--Too long, don't bother!
(1) When we built our TV repair shop (1984), I drew out and designed the plans on how I wanted it to look. One side was the TV shop, the other was my ceramic shop. I didn't want my side to have the door in the middle, because it would limit where I could display things. I wanted the door offset to the side, so I could put my counter on one side and maximize the shelf area in the rest of the room. Lo, we went there one day during construction and, to my horror, the door was in the middle. The builder said it looked more balanced that way. I didn't care if it looked balanced; I just wanted more floor room. Gahhh!
(2) We had a front bedroom remodeled. I told the guy what we wanted, and he did a great job. The only thing I couldn't figure out (and still don't like) was the door to the room. All our inside doors are stained, not painted. He stained the outside of the door, but because the inside of the room was white, he painted the inside of the door white. I had never heard of that, and I still don't like it!
(3) We had a water leak from an outside faucet several years ago. The plumber fixed the leak just fine, but because he figured the hose hadn't been removed during the winter and probably froze (causing the leak), he put on a special faucet (without asking). Before that special faucet, I was able to just trickle water through the hose where I wanted it. This faucet won't enable trickling; it has to be turned up with more force, otherwise the water just bubbles up into and out the faucet and doesn't reach the hose.
If you want to think of a better way for me, give me (and explain) the options. Otherwise, just fix things like I ask!
Sorry I vented, G'ma. But you did post the question!
