Lori and I went to the shop tonight to do the final prep and cleanup before they start painting. We were joined by our friend Lowell, and Mark from Del Biaggio Construction. While Lori was cleaning the plaster dust off of the walls, she put the ladder right through the floor. No more donuts for Lori! Actually she managed to find a board that was devastated by post beetles. We were quite lucky that: 1. She didn’t fall off the ladder and get hurt (in which case she would have been banned from the shop); 2. She found it a day before they were due to start on the floors, rather than a day after they were refinished; and 3. Lowell and Mark were there and that there was still some wood left over for them to repair it. Hopefully that will be the last construction surprise.
