Happy Labor Day To All!

Very happy to report that the landscaping work has been booked and we should be starting with clearing of the backyard in a few weeks. Right now it looks like the Wild West and we are afraid to even go there, being that it has now become a habitat of: 1 groundhog family, 2 rabbit families which are fast becoming 10 families, at least 2-3 fawns and does, 1 million mosquitoes and countless other species of bugs we have never seen in our lives, 4 recognizable species of birds (species that we recognize), squirrels, field mice, etc. This is a photo from a week ago...

We found the "missing" house

Thanks to one of our readers, Robert, who identified the house on South Mountain Avenue.

I almost crashed into a tree while looking at it and can't believe I never noticed it before. It was right there. I mean, it looks exactly the same as in this photo. Right?

The funny thing is that I drive by the house almost daily. Which goes to show you just how many things go unnoticed in our lives...

Award from Montclair Historic Preservation Commission

Our lovely porch restoration has won an award from the Montclair Historic Preservation Commission for Brick and Mortar Preservation project in the residential category.

We are very honored. Here is the story in Baristanet.

And here is the photo of the porch.

The awards ceremony is on Thursday, November 19. We hope to see you all there.

Kids Bath: Electrical - DONE

Electrical - DONE, TOO! Yay!

However, he opened a hole in the wall in the wrong place above the mirror, so now that needs to be patched up tomorrow. That means an extra day tacked on. We really wanted it to be finished tomorrow. We are already 4 days over schedule. Ugh.

I. Need. This. Job. To. End.
