In case you were wondering...

This blog exists to encourage all those who have ever wanted--and needed!--a tiny getaway close to home. A workshop, playhouse, garden shed, sanctuary, mini-greenhouse, studio, home office; whatever it is you need, it IS doable, with some sacrifice, imagination, and compromise.

It helps if you're handy, too.

Mike measures..., originally uploaded by Cathy (Kate) Johnson.
Mike came the same day we called, gave us a bid, told us he'd try to get there yesterday afternoon but if he couldn't it would be this morning.

He called to say it would be too late yesterday, and yep, he came this morning!

So we have two new plug ins in the shed, 20 amp, so they'll be heavy duty and last as long as the shed, I imagine.

It was really good to see him again--he used to do all our electrical work, but then he retired to Texas...didn't take, and he's back. He's such a nice guy...we chatted a lot, catching eachother up with what's gone on in the past 10 years.

Meanwhile the insulation guy that was going to call back after lunch yesterday still has not. It's been over 3 weeks that we've been trying to get someone just to SHOW UP.


  1. Well, one step in the right direction, anyways. ;)

  2. Yep. Still no call back from the stupid insulation company...amazing, isn't it? Guess they don't need money.

  3. How do these people stay in business?...they don't want to do the work, just want the money. In the condition of this economy you'd think they'd be clamoring for work? But what do I know?

  4. That's rather how it seems to me, Joan! I called and they were supposed to call me back to schedule on Monday. I left another call on Friday. The next WEEK sometime, someone called back and had NO idea about the job, though I'd told the first guy exactly what we needed. So I told THIS guy. Days go by. Someone else called, had NO idea about the job, I told him again, and he said he'd get with one of the other guys who had talked to me and get back to me that afternoon. That was a couple of days ago. Good GRIEF.

  5. Get someone else to do the job. And when the previous group calls you, act like YOU don't know what the hail they're talkin' about. Job? Insulation? Who are you calling? What number are you calling. Joe who? Kate Who? You must be mistaken. HA

  6. I wish, Joan! So far I've only been able to find two who do spray foam insulation in this area. Bet they know it, too.
