spent all day yesterday digging a drain line around two walls of my house. i found a break in the basement wall that was letting water pour in when the gutters overflowed. so i patched that and installed drain line. this should let the water flow around and away from the house instead of flooding the basement....

i also ordered the new fireplace... should be here in a month

not quite wood working

just spent a busy weekend installing an electrical system in a friends pole building, ten outlets and eight lights..... i should have setup the lights like a strand of xmas lights... you know when one bulb goes out they all go out.... hahaha, i would have but the lights are twenty feet off the floor and would have been a pain to check them all in the dark....oh well what are friends for?
i also spent a few hours re-taring the flashing on my roof, that should stop the leak for another year..... perhaps a new roof is in my future..
