There's a Reason I Don't Have a Blog Today

the deck is stained.

the deck has stair rails.

the front veranda has no indoor/outdoor carpet on it anymore (and which idiot invented that, anyway?)

the front veranda has no railings (but oh, I love sledge hammers!)

the front veranda is missing some floor boards (ditto on the crow bar)

the front veranda has a rotten floor joist (and that's how you see yourself over budget and behind time, before the project has even really started.)

Pictures tomorrow. More Advil right now.
