Slacker ...

We didn't do anything today, nothing, zip, zilch, nada. Ok, not true, we didn't do any actual work, but whatever we do is usually work related.

Today we visited the construction site of E!'s sister's new home. She and her husband are in the final stages of remodeling and adding on to an old farm house. Right now they have the plasterers do their magic, and that is why we went there. We wanted to see the magic, and talk to the plasterers.

We had a good chat and got lots of good information. One info we got was a pointer to a lumber place, where we might find the kind of rough sawn lumber, which we are looking for to cover the beams in the beer hall.

As the day was halfway over already we decided to head to the lumber yard, and check it out. We get there and find something we like, pack up the truck and are ready to leave, when E! points out the almost flat front tire on the truck. Always something.

With the help of one of the yard workers and fix-o-flat we were on our way, and made it home safe.

So, get excited, soon there will be some interesting changes.

Today was a rather successful day, I got ahold of Matt (my favorite boiler man), he might be by on Friday, Jeff (our plumber) will return at the end of the week, I had a chat with Lou (our favorite structural engineer), and the electrical inspector was here and liked what he saw.
