Around Town

Its been a busy couple of days as the Indiana project nears completion.  I have to make sure that I have all of the materials in place for the different sub-contractors that are there now finishing up.

On Monday I drove a big Ford Super Duty truck to a city an hour away to visit the granite wholesaler Cosmos in person. My goal was to bring my own granite slab back to avoid waiting on it to be delivered.  I failed, the folks in the warehouse said it was far too dangerous for me to haul it myself even though I borrowed the local stone fabricators A-frame.

I’ve been running around a lot balancing my real job with finishing this project. I’m sorry for the scant posting, things will pick back up soon.

I did manage to squeeze in a visit to Karen’s Attic recently to help my friend Amanda in her search for all sorts of furniture.

While I was there I snapped a few pictures and sent them to her.

  • Okay Sarah you have talked me into going into Karen’s Attic, the next time I am in town. I like the old lockers. Jaxson has a large bedroom, and I could see them on the wall, filled with all kinds of neat stuff.
