My summer vacation

8 09 2009

Now that Labor Day has passed, those of you with warm season grasses should be about ready to retire your lawn mowers for the cool season. Remember to run the mower until it runs out of gasoline before storing for the winter. Old gasoline will impede operation of the carburetor when you try to start the mower again in late spring. (This also holds true for tillers, string trimmers, leaf blowers and other gas powered equipment that is going to be stored for the off season.)

This summer I’ve changed window sashes for a number of clients. If you’re looking to upgrade your windows, sash replacement is a less expensive way to get the features of the latest windows.

I’ve spent a number of days maintaining a 100-year-old commercial building in Apex. The building used to be a hardware store with hay stored in a loft. Now that loft is the home to an engineering firm and the street level occupants are retail businesses. The lowest level houses a music school and a magician! It’s been a joy working amidst the variety of creative professionals in this interesting refurbished downtown space.

And then for a bit of frivolity, I helped a client haul brush into the woods where I was bitten by more than a dozen ticks of varying sizes. On my doctor’s recommendation, I was treated prophylactically for a number of tick-borne ailments!

I look forward to hearing from you soon to schedule an attack on YOUR honey-do list. As always, no job is too small.

Hi Doug -Kudos to you – nice looking and informative site, lots of fun to see your latest projects but watch the ticks – a friend was in intensive care 5 days from one of those diseases.

Take care,
