This old man was very easy going. His mum had her cabinets sitting in the garage for a year before she found a contractor to remodel her kitchen(that was me). He was a curious creature who kept coming in to the work area to say 'hi' and investigate. The job took place over some of the hottest weeks of the year, and we opted in agreement with the homeowner to put his in the yard during the day. I set up a pop-up awning to shade him from the intense sun. He was very happy.
Towards the end of the project, a microburst came through the neighborhood. Pup was indoors, no harm there. The pop-up awning was uprooted from its stakes and tossed into a dangling position not-so-neatly in-between the power lines on the weatherhead. CMP had a chuckle when I called them to remove it. There are some- er, many things which I would defer to the skills in action of a trained professional. Including but not limited to extra large forks stuck in extra large light sockets.
We have been in the office now for over a week. People are starting to pop in and introduce themselves. Sometimes I get the feeling that I've been working on a jigsaw puzzle most of my life, and when a new person walks in the door it's like finding a missing piece from under the coffee table. Speaking of which, we still don't have a coffee table. Looking for something MidMod. Today I met Andrew, who owns Select CabineTree. He made the time to come over and introduce himself and open the door. I felt the guiding hand of a benevolent higher power.
