Finishing Touches

We finished painting and installing new flooring at a neighbours house yesterday. The flooring was tricky in spots with a lot of undercutting of the baseboard and sometimes removing it all together. All her door casings had plinth blocks.

Painting and Flooring Job

Yesterday we started a small job which has grown in size.  If you remember, we had installed a new glass storm door for a neighbour a few weeks ago. At the time she mentioned she would like to have new flooring installed in two bedrooms: a spare bedroom and her master bedroom and ensuite, plus walk-in closet.

The spare room had some damage to the drywall where a cabinet had been removed, so she asked to have the drywall fixed and both rooms painted.

First up was fixing the drywall in the spare room.

Holiday Raccoon yard art project

Today we added a fun new design from Monica Sugg, an artist living in the Halifax area of Nova Scotia, Canada. This Holiday Raccoon measures 28.5 x 30 inches in size. We provide the full size drawing for you to successfully complete this project. While at our online store take a few minutes to view the thousands of other yard art projects you can use to decorate your outdoor living space!

Workyard expansion

Never thought I would say this but we started expanding the work yard today. Going inwards on each side of the road about 30-40 ft. For now it will be a place to put flitches and rejects off the mill. Afterwards it’ll be space for a couple 10×20 sheds. Its a sloped hill, so dirt removed from the left side will be used to fill in the right side.

Gravestone repairs

We are the caretakers of the cemetery across the lake from us. We have been for about 11 years now. That involves mowing and any repairs we see fit. Saturday we spent the afternoon at the cemetery filling in low spots in the grass and straightening some headstones. As you can see, this one is tilting forward quite a bit. It is actually tilted more than this picture shows since the cemetery is on a hill.
