The basement framing is almost complete. There are a few fiddly things left for them to do. That means electrical is next. I don't do electrical. Lee does, however. So I will be his gopher and dogsbody.
I've never added up all the things Lee does, but it is a lot. For example, our daughter came for a visit this weekend and mentioned a wobble in her car when braking. Lee diagnosed it as rotors. (No I have no idea either, just trust him, it was the rotors) Because his records showed it had been quite a few miles since her last brake job, we lent her our car and he fixed both items. I figure we have saved goo-gobs of dollars over the years. Goo-gobs is a technical term for scads.
We bought a lot of Romex wire and plastic receptacles for the outlets and switches. Now I know why people steal copper. Lee has been drawing notes on top of the electrical plans to help him when he starts running wires. I can drill holes and nail in receptacles and hand things up ladders, so I will do that. And sweep up. Yay.
But in the meantime, it is a beautiful fall day here in Southwest Virginia. Here is a view off our back deck towards the Blue Ridge Parkway.
Turn a wee bit and you can see the hill behind our house. Some pine trees are growing back after Pine Borers or something, did them in a few years ago. It is nice to have some patches of green through the winter.
