More updates on the home improvement front. Today, I took phone calls about both the roof and the electrical upgrade. They’ll be here to start on the roof next week Wednesday and expect it to take two days. The utility company has scheduled the electrical work for the first day of July. And as I mentioned yesterday, the fence will start this Thursday. Lots of exciting stuff and good news around these parts.
But not everything is happening around here without issue. I need to pick up some vinyl j-channel and a few pieces of siding so that I can cut in the new back door for the garage and go around the framing for the screened patio. However, I’m not 100% sure what I’m looking for. The company that I picked up siding from last time has moved, changed names, and apparently changed names again. They’re still in business, just wouldn’t know it without a bit of research.
Anyway, I went there this morning to get what I need, only to find that they’re not quite open yet. What with the Covid-19. Their counter and showroom are closed to the public. You can call and place orders for pick-up… but I don’t really know what I need. So, I went online and found their website and their product list and realized that if you’re not an existing customer you can’t order from them online. But maybe now I have enough information to make a relatively informed phone call? Maybe. I guess we’ll find out tomorrow.
I haven’t gotten around to making the flower boxes for my privacy screen, but Lady Ronn is making the best of it with a bit of power washing and some other planters. Looks pretty good to me. I’d make the boxes, but my garage is a giant pile of tools and even if I could get to my saws, I wouldn’t be able to find anything else. Yet another thing waiting for the electrical work to get done.
Oh… I also requested an estimate for a 12×20 concrete slab for the shed, a new driveway, and a new garage floor. Not sure a couple of those are realistic projects, but I’m interested in knowing how much that’d cost. Because you never know. Depends on how much home equity line of credit money is left after this first round of projects is done.
That’s it for today. I think tomorrow I’ll give my two cents on the riots, black lives, and the LGBT stuff that’s been in the news lately. Later.
