During our home addition and remodel we’ve taken a tiny 1,232 square foot house and moved all the stuff from half of it into the other half. That has required some, uh, adjustments. The images above of my “temporary” office reflect some of them. Note the plain pine board laid across two file cabinets I use as my desk. In this “office” are 95% of my clothes, much of our non-perishable food storage, Heidi’s classroom supplies, my office equipment, and several boxes of goodness-knows what.
I’m also wired to need quiet to do my investment research and writing. What I get five days a week are a cacophony often consisting of such things as a Bobcat, demo hammer, meal grinders, nail guns, and construction workers yelling to each other. They have to yell in order to hear each other over the noise and from various parts of the construction area and the using they sometimes blare. It’s okay, though, because there is a thin sheet of plastic between all of that and my office.
It’s all been quite and adventure and I count my blessings many times a day that we’re able to do a remodel and addition to our home and to have these men and women working hard on our behalf.
I’m sharing this post with you so that you’ll know when I say I’ll be glad when it’s all over, I REALLY, REALLY mean it.
