Busy Summer

Posted by on August 16, 2017

I’ll keep it short, just to get a journal entry in…

Work has been insane busy.  This is a good thing in the consulting business, especially following a slow stretch.  Busy bidding work, designing projects, and dealing with staff changes.  Fun times though.  The work is interesting and challenging, and I have a great office downtown.

We have made a lot of progress on fixing the house; more so outside than inside, but we have to take advantage of the sunny days.

Kelly got the exterior painted, which was a two week project with lots of construction repairs and decisions to make.

Tate and I built the fence along with Stephen, a former co-worker.  The fence was a lot of work.  We had to map out all the post locations, auger most of them with a two-man gas auger, and manually dig a few, working around underground obstructions and such.  Three full weekends, 10 am to dark, to the point where Tate had to ask for mercy and I could hardly walk on Mondays.  Good, hard work.

Turned out better than we expected.  Tate and I admire our craftsmanship every time we go outside.  Well earned.

Next up, a locking bike shed in the back, then moving to the interior work.

Otherwise, great summer.  We had a few days above 105.  It was hot, but I sure do appreciate the sun and the heat after our long, cold, wet and icy winter.  No complaints about the heat from me.
