Oil To Gas Conversion

Let's just say that this was not a most welcome sight you would want to have in your front yard. Especially not after spending months not being able to use front of your house due to construction. In any case, we feel it had to be done. The cost of oil to heat the house was astronomical, bordering on cost-prohibitive. We tried everything we could to save, but it just kept going up. We are hoping that with this conversion, as well as the new insulation on the bottom floor, we can get the cost of heating to under $900 a month in the winter months. Fingers crossed!

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...

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.
