Happiness is a cold planer

15 Aug

..finally. we had a string of 3 days with nice weather so A* and I planed..and planed..and planed. We figure this week we each have spent around 17 hours planing. By our estimation planing is 3/4 of the work that was needed to put in the flooring…but we are done it now. Not a minute too soon as near the end I was taking a break every 2 boards to keep from going over the deep end of sanity. I think only drywalling completion matched the level of joy A* and I feel..and we aren’t even done the rest of the floor yet.

    heh… I can imagine… drywall is a miserable job… it’s got to feel good to have that done.

      Hells ya. Small victory since there is more to do..I always know when a big job is nearly done as I have to force myself to slow down as I rush to complete it. Hehe
