Onward and Upward

I just love it when my husband asks for tools for Christmas. This happens every year during the holidays and on his birthday. And when he gets tools AND gifts cards for Lowes or Home Depot, you just KNOW there is a project in the works.

In a very short period of time right after Christmas, John took the measurements for the wall outside my studio in the basement and framed it out on the floor. Then we lifted this framework into place under the ventwork and he took a sledgehammer and put it into place. I admire a man that can build things! Granted our basement is unfinished but this is progress! I am hoping that by the time we retire we'll have the basement finished while we can still walk down the basement steps!

I am really excited to see that the project has started and realize that we'll only be able to do small things, a little at a time, as the budget allows. But still!

So exciting! I LOVED the whole process of finishing our basement in our last house. It was a slow process, but so satisfying in that WE were the ones making the changes and turning a cold, cement basement into fun rooms. :)

I really need a man who is handy. OR a man who can afford to pay a man that is handy.

Progress is progress and it's wonderful that he can do this for you. May I send my husband down for lessons?

Yes Lois, please send your husband here for lessons. My husband is very handy and can figure out most anything it seems!
