Weekend Update

Well, well, well... I made a little progress this weekend in the In-Laws house. Did the final coat of mud on the laundry room drywall. Patched some holes (man I love caulk!) and got a good start on the door and window casings. I also put on a lot of base board. The contractor did a lousy job in a couple of areas of trim, where the new addition and old house come together. I think I'm going to have to redo some stuff. I'm thinking a couple more days will finish off the inside. There is still a years worth of stuff to do. Yard work, decks and steps. New lights and stuff. Of course they want to move in this weekend.... Oh well, keep plugging away

Handyman Update

Just received my marching orders for this weekend. I need to finish up the taping and texturing of the laundry room in my inlaws new (old) house. I also need to measure for the black walnut trimming I need to do... not to worry things will change by Friday..

Achievement days 2006

Brandon made some wooden cars for grant county achievement days. He got his 4-h project ideas from toys n joys catalog. We ordered the plans and cut em out. Pretty cool. He got a purple ribbon on the cars and now they are on their way to the South Dakota State Fair! We are going to make a trip down there to see how they did. With any luck ill remember to take a picture.

This is the latest wild idea. still in the planing stage, this will be a complete 96 sf house. i think i can use it for ice fishing and a guest house! Posted by Picasa
