News from My Chip Carving
It’s been quite a while since you’ve heard from me. I’ve been scrambling working on the house I mentioned I’m building for Shelley and me. It seems like I take one step forward and three BIG steps backwards.
I finished the drywall taping and mudding and applied a knockdown finish. Before the sheetrock was hung we had some torrential rains with up to 5 inches in one storm. I hadn’t finished the landscaping yet and some water ran down the exterior basement walls (ICF for all you building geeks). Hardly any water was visible in the basement but the walls must have gotten wet enough to cause the start of mold to grow. Arghhhh!!
Shelley and I are leaving on a vacation with my family to visit the motherlands of my Mom (Czech Republic) and my Dad (Holland). I’ll bring back some Czech and Dutch inspired chip carving patterns when I return. Bethany will be here to mind the store.
