My house is crawling with men



Two guys are installing the new garage doors in front, and three guys are digging out the hillside to prepare the foundation for the new deck. You see that deck in the picture on the top of the blog? It burned to cinders in the CA wildfires last November. And the garage doors were damaged when the neighbors/firefighters used crowbars and feet to remove it to put out the garage fire. It was tacked back up temporarily, but today we will get our brand new garage doors. Yay! I can't wait to hear how quiet the new opener is. The old one was as loud as a jet engine.

That's 5 men working. Now all I need is for the gardeners and the pool guy to show up.

Wow you are surround by men - but all for good reason. I'm so glad only the deck & garage door where damaged in the fire. Thank God no lives lost and the whole house burnt down.

I bet it's look beautiful when all has been said and done.

So glad you're getting your deck and garage door replaced finally - things are really shaping up, aren't they? :)

Hello! Following you from MBC. Reno work is so frazzling isn't it? But so worth it in the end.
