Pride


Chase loves this place I take her to run.

It's been a slow winter for the Contracting business... something I've been doing for more than 25 years. This shot was taken yesterday... a day ending many, many without work. Today I start a job that will take me well into late Spring and possibly longer. I'll be putting the finishing touches on a newly constructed 7k sq. ft. Carriage House. Yes.. 7,000 !! Imagine a cute Carriage House with all the glorious trim work they adorn, only the size of a small castle with it's 3 staircases, 4 fireplaces, 5 bedrooms and separate guest quarters complete with it's own kitchen. It even has a matching barn on the property.

Pride.. my own as well as Chase's. I'm proud to be the one chosen to do this work out of many carpenters/contractors screened. I'm also honored and grateful. Chase's pride speaks for itself.

We hear so much bad news it's surprising to realize that some folks still have money to spend. Congrats on getting the job. It says a lot about your reputation.

If your photography skills are any indication of your carpentry skills that carriage house will be a work of art. Congratulations on the landing the contract.
