I kicked it off by breaking out some power tools and a pile of 2x4s, and fixed the front and back steps of the studio. I also painted the steps and all the outside window trim. Much more work has to go into the curb appeal of the studio (flowers and all the frilly crap) but it looks a lot cleaner and you won't trip and die if you try and knock on the door.
|Yeah it's a jungle.|
So with much manic laughter Jeremy got er' done.
Oh, hey look, there is a house! I promptly ran out and bought curtains. Turns out we don't need a deck to get morning sunshine! Yeah, it's not the same, but "The List" reigns supreme around here.
Other bits and pieces have been started and some finished. Jeremy finally plumbed in the sink and toilet in the studio, but the water still isn't on... waiting on a tub so hopefully next week.
Baseboards for one of the kids rooms are painted and almost installed (ahem).
Jeremy buckled down to his most hated job, finishing carpentry. He can do it but he just likes sledge hammers and chainsaws better... don't we all. So the inside of the upstairs windows are done as are other tedious jobs hardly worth mentioning. The types of jobs where it takes longer to assemble your tools than to actually do the work.
But summer wasn't all just hair raising deck battles and paint spattered bikinis.
|Sam: "Should there be a caption here?"|
Jeremy: " I don't know what you could possibly say..."
But why not check out a great B.C. music festival? Like the one my brother puts together just outside of Chetwynd, B.C.
Awaking Music Festival
But now it's fall, and life begins to pick up it's pace again. We didn't quite finish "The List" actually we didn't even get close (Jeremy figures I'm sabotaging him by scribbling more chores onto it daily). But once Harvest is over we will get right into it again. Winter renovation sucks, but at least you don't get distracted by sunshine and camping.
