School's out + it's heating up. Let's kick the summer off the right way! Also, Truman is turning nine! Eight was awesome. Seven was a bust (thanks, COVID). His sixth birthday party at the bowling alley was cool — and the after-party was even cooler (click for link to video).... Continue reading

That's our job: to maintain a level of aesthetic and functional appropriateness and pass that along to our students. We are in one of the professions where "being judge-y" is part... Continue reading

Our neighbor Stephan needed a new door — the old one was in terrible condition (and it was a terrible door). Like many, we replaced more than just the door. The post needed to be resecured and there was a good bit of adjacent refining. The best part was the... Continue reading

This is chair number three for Chanda and Jamie. This chair had seen better days and a few unfortunate repairs. The legs were nearly completely shot and a few new holes had been attempted to secure them. The pesky thing about these chairs is that the legs and the body... Continue reading
