Renovate. The Bean Pad.

With the groundwork established and Kevan’s plans to renovate approved, the fun started right away with the demolition. When Kevan was interviewing contractors on-site for the job, one struck him as the most together because he had commented on the fact that another contractor doing work in the building had not properly covered the floors and walls of the elevator and lobby. He assured everyone that his guys would bring and install the necessary protection so Kevan wouldn’t get dinged by the building for damaged floors and walls. That guy got the job.kevan bean, renovate, Jesse shafer, greg mchale, jesse and greg, on the real, nyc travel, nyc restaurants, new york city, manhattan, Brooklyn, tourism, nyc bars, nycWell, guess what happened? On the first day of demo, his workers come in to rip out walls and floors…a huge mess…and they don’t put anything down to protect the elevator or the lobby. Half way through their load-out, the building’s super shows up and understandably flips out that these guys are making a huge mess for him to clean up.kevan bean, renovate, Jesse shafer, greg mchale, jesse and greg, on the real, nyc travel, nyc restaurants, new york city, manhattan, Brooklyn, tourism, nyc bars, nycOut of spite or rage, he shuts the elevator off to the 13th floor (Kevan’s apartment) and calls the president of the condo board to report the mess. The board president then calls Kevan (who is shooting and unavailable) in a blind rage telling him that he is going to be fined and threatening legal action if he doesn’t immediately rectify the situation. Welcome to the building, Kevan! kevan bean, renovate, Jesse shafer, greg mchale, jesse and greg, on the real, nyc travel, nyc restaurants, new york city, manhattan, Brooklyn, tourism, nyc bars, nycAt least these guys swept up after they ripped everything out. Oh, and that’s one day’s work even with the three hours of downtime before they got the elevator turned back on. Thanks guys for the great work, but did you really have to piss off everyone right out of the gate?
