So, the carpenter came today and is now working on the door. Which means we can now order our stained glass piece! Woohoo! I will be sure to post some pictures when it is done. It also means he will start working on the fireplace, and after he is done we can put some of our books away and hang the mirror I got a while back.

Also, I have a serious hankering to buy one of those air powered nailers. I can think or about 8 projects I would use it for. Must. Have. It. Oh, and along with that I will take a table saw. . . and maybe a router. Where would I store this table saw? No idea. Perhaps I could use it to build a garage with a workshop on top. That would be really amazing.

The time has come to empty the guest bathroom of all our stored objects and litter craigslist with ads. So, this weekend we will embark on organizing the house as well as re-arranging the furniture and maybe tackling some of the backyard. Before we can demo the brick planters we need to till the yard and remove the weeded grass stuff. This way, when the dirt starts to tumble out of the planters, it will just mesh with the dirt in the yard and we can use it to level out the space. It turns out we can rent a pretty powerful tiller from our local tool rental place for about $80 bucks for a 24 hour period. While the inside of the house will be re-assembled, the outside will be smashed to bits. Ahh. . .projects.
