I haven’t been able to blog much lately–too busy with the remodel! I took a “vacation” from my regular job last week so that I could devote all my efforts to the addition. I’ll post more on the project status … Continue reading
Our roof is finished! Bill and his guys came by this morning and got it done in a few hours. I didn’t have time to go up and take a picture of Barb’s shop. There is some extra roofing material … Continue reading
I’d like to recommend some of the great subcontractors that we’ve worked with. Unfortunately, many of them don’t have web sites for me to link to. I’ve got a few business cards in my wallet, and I started scanning those … Continue reading
