Men with tools

120808_05A little up-date on the building. Since I took that last photo through the window they have already put up another wall of the first floor.  There’s not much I can do during the day while they are building since it’s nearly impossible to get out of the house without climbing over piles of lumber or getting in the way. With that in mind I am finishing a few things that have been languishing in the Closet of Shame. These would be things I found while clearing space for the guys to get into the attic and install a central air unit. That will be coming up soon and I dread it but the result will be great. We can finally get rid of the window units and in particular the one in my bedroom that makes the most un-earthly whine from time to time. It’s one of the newest ones we have and was only purchased last summer from Best Buy. It makes an almost human whine that doesn’t bother me during the day since I’m not up there a lot. Night time is very different though. That whine, late at night, is very disturbing. If I wasn’t getting central air installed I would take that sucker back where it came from. No point now. I will happily push it out the window and watch it crash into a dirt pile. Very fun! That’s how we got rid of the last one. James just dropped it to the ground. Saved his back and provided entertainment for those of us with too much time on our hands.

In the center picture you will se what appears to be an opening for a window. That is the cut out for the Corgi bay window for Lucy.  It even appears that way on the plans now. They all got a kick out of it.

I’m headed to the sewing machine to put the binding on that Granny Square wall hanging. It’s amazing how much you can get done when you are stuck inside with no way out. The photos are clickable for a larger view

More soon….

Wow! Lots of progress. Hope the noise and bedlam of men at work does not get to you. Sometimes, you just need to escape.

Well, you're doing good. I can manage to NOT get a whole lot done when I am stuck inside.

With that title I was hoping for something hunky.

A Corgi Bay window. That's a nice idea. I hope Lucy appreciates it.
