It is finished…

It took 3-years, but we finally settled up with the contractor that built our home after he surprised us with some substantial charges that would weren’t ready for, nor could we afford. We set aside money every month to pay him, but refused to go beyond a certain dollar amount until he fully accounted for the extra charges. We’re very grateful that all parties were able to come to an agreement without any snarky feelings or anger. So, with some of our tax return money this year, and the craftsmanship of a wonderful friend and carpenter (Ron Mauck, Mauck Construction, Cocolalla, Idaho – yes, that’s a shameless plug!), we could afford to finish the last two rooms in the basement of our home. Pictured here is Ron’s helper, Danno, the drywall artist (really. I’ve never seen anyone take so much care in making the walls perfect).


In cleaning out these two rooms, we also threw out many items brought here from Illinois. Boxes unopened for 3+ years. Items that had so much value back then, now are going to rummage sales, give-aways and the dump.

There’s just a few more odds and ends and the house will officially be… finished. Come visit and see.
