While we're waiting I can tell ya a story...

Back in February the Mrs and I signed on with a contractor to turn our little screen porch into a big sunroom.. We said the only catch was it HAD to be done before July 1st. No problem, this is an easy build. We'll start mid april, be done mid May..

Well, mid April became late May, and we 're still not done....

Started here -


And this is now - This pic is a couple days old.. Siding and outside trim is done (still no gutters)





He's got 2 crews out there busting ass trying to get as much done as possible, but there will be no flooring or electrical by Saturday... hard to say what else won't be done.. Driving me nuts. He says that it'll be clean and good for a party, just missing floor.. We'll see. Here's where we were yesterday evening -

To his credit, He's trying really hard to keep his word. And they do great work. As far as contractors go, I could have done a lot worse.

I'm going thru that right now. Been waiting since March for my sprinkler system to be installed. Rains every week.

New smoker is here! Paul and Sharon wanted to come up for the BBQ, so I figured I better get my trailer order in. Ryan (SmokerPA) and his family came into town from eastern Pennsylvania as well. Going to be a great weekend!

Paul and Ryan -


The smoker - 24x70, standard size with elevated warmer. Super shiny shelf!
