This big news here is that the floors have been uncovered! It’s really beginning to feel like a place to live instead of a construction project.
This seems a silly photo but there’s a lot behind it. It took us about four months and pressure from our city who holds the franchise agreement, our state and the FCC to get Comcast to install internet for us.

A bit of heartache. Balanced on top is one of the first ‘large’ dimmer systems I made. Eighteen 2.4kw and six 6kw dimmers were in that rack. It lit Little River Band, Kansas, Phil Keaggy, The Beach Boys, Roy Orbison, John Prine, Randy Stonehill, John McLoughlin and the Mahavishnu Orchestra, Alabama, Hotel, Crimson Tide and even that perennial favorite Peaches & Herb.

Uncovered! What an amazing transformative difference this made.
There were a few of these in the lower level where we had to use engineered instead of solid wood. Perry is planning to replace them soon.

One of our favorite restaurants that we frequently ride out bicycles to. The old much smaller outdoor seating filled up fast so for us there’s one big benefit to Covid – AMPLE OUTDOOR SEATING! This is a quite enjoyable place to eat and many in the area are hoping that they keep it.
