My hero carpenter

Couldn't be more pleased with his work.  He is meticulous, which takes time.  This took all day. 
 
 
We may do the interior window trim ourselves since he is running out of time, and that's OK.  But with only three more boards to replace, I think he may finish it all.

I read a post on FB from (can't remember who) about the school incident.  Little did I know that when scrolling I accidently hit the smiling face (reaction, emoticon, whatever) and did not know until I checked the activity on my page.  I immediately deleted the reaction but it must have been on that post for a while.  If this was your post, I'm sorry, it was certainly not intentional.  I also found other posts with emoticons that I did not intend to leave so I guess I better be damn careful when scrolling.
 
I blitzed through Walmart for a few items and spotted Dove dark chocolate bags for $3.  The bill for these few boards of cedar was much more than expected and I realized that I must pull those purse strings even tighter.  Well heck, I have to save wherever I can and the more I buy the more I save.  Right?
 
Chris posted that to burn off one M&M candy, you need to walk the length of a football field.  I should be in Utah soon.

QUILTING IS BLISSFUL, DI said...

Thanks for chuckle about the chocolate--
I only eat dark chocolate and they tell you to eat dark chocolate and how 'good'it is for you nutritionally--so why did my doctor just tell me I had to quit eating chocolate ( and she added fatty food--which I thought I was good at not doing--until I really looked at the labels--oh ouch--I have always worried more about not eating food coloring, food preservatives and sugar--) so what is a person to eat????
enjoy the chocolate--di

The siding looks good and I am glad you found someone who cares about his work. Having lived with a very meticulous handy husband for 32 years I have come to appreciate the investment of time in doing a job well the first time and then not having to do it again for a long time!

My laugh for the day. I love your posts. Happy the house is coming along as you wish after sooooo much crap getting to this point.Your house looks wonderful. Keep the photos coming. Mark walked past me with a 4' level and I cracked up laughing and he looked at me like i was on drugs. I told him you love a man and his level no matter what the length. He just shook his head and kept walking.I giggled for quite awhile after that one.

It's great to see progress being made. But the garage door -- ugh!

One M&M = one football field... how 'bout I meet you somewhere in California?

So glad you're happy with the contractor and his work as I know getting this work done is something you've been trying to make happen for quite a while.
