Day 4 ~ stair rail built, windows and electrical checked out


Oh my oh my oh my... I just now, at 9:09 pm saw what Ben and Pete did to the patio stairs, the rail is GORGEOUS! I tried to wiggle it like my last one and it wouldn't budge!!!! We tried to get Gina to join us today but she was tied up at home. Soon Gina! I sure could use some of your wonderful advice. These guys have me hopping all over the place here!

It's really strange being in this place with improvements. I'm so use to living in limbo with wiggly and squeaky stuff. Everything that's touched is strong, silent and magnificent. I didn't think I could ever feel like that about living here. I am being proven wrong and I couldn't be happier!

Ok, so the day started with Ben coming to meet window guy John. To my pleasant surprise, Pete came too and Ben and Pete worked on the stair rail while waiting for John. Once John arrived, he did what he did best and measured up windows and offering advice. Awesome to meet you John!

Cody and I then had to leave for a soccer game. When we came home, Rich the electrician was here with Pete. Rich blew me away with his know-how and expertise. He's a true Holmes kinda guy. He and Pete devised a plan before I even got there and knew what they had to do. All the electrical will be checked, tweeked, done right. A new box is needed because the old one is full. They are gonna buzz saw the floors up but good and get those wires in where they need to be!

I hope my house is very scared. No more nonsense from you, house!

Welcome to the project, Rich and John!

Thanks everyone, for taking the time and coming out tonite. I can't begin to tell you how much it's appreciated. But I'll continue to try!
