Yesterday was a good day. It wasn't especially different than any normal day: get the crew started, do some estimates, do some paper work, a lot of driving, and a lot of time on the phone. But two customers made the day really good. And it was the simplest thing that did it: they both gave me a cold bottle of water while I did their estimate. Obviously good contractor customer service is a must to stay in business, and to enjoy what you do if you're in the contracting world. Happy customers are so much more pleasant to deal with, and if a contractor has been great with their service it's a more smooth road when problems come up. The customer knows the contractor team cares, and they feel confident any problems can be overcome. Flip this onto the other side, and a contractor that has bee...

Those of you that know me, know that my mind is always looking for the funny.  To those of you that don't know me, the same holds true.  Sorry we haven't met. So I saw a commercial a year or two back, that kept showing inanimate objects that actually had what looked like a smile on them.  Eyes and a mouth basically.  Ever since then, I've been seeing smiley faces on inanimate objects. So I have another one to show you.  I walk past it every day.  It seems to look at me happily, in a robotic way, and say "Hi". So without further ado, say hi to my friend, Mr Dryer!                               Happy Easter, Everyone!

Ok, this just might be TMI or too personal for some of you, so be warned.   But funny can happen anywhere!  And in this case, it was completely unexpected.  But my brain is always looking for funny, even when I'm not conscious of it.  And so it found this funny smiley face.     And it was not in use at the time of the photo, so don't worry!

****04/17/11 UPDATE:At the bottom is a couple of day after videos, to show the difference between the height of the stream flow & flooding, and a more normal state in my back yard. If you're interested to just see the difference, then look at videos #3 & #7 in the first set, and both in the second set.**** There was a tornado outbreak on Saturday 4/16/11 in North Carolina. It was the first time since 1984 that we have been in a "High" risk area for tornado development, and they did develop. There were at least 60 reports of tornadoes on the ground in my local area, and one apparently went to the east of us by just a few miles. Unfortunately, there were some fatalities around the area as well from the tornadoes. I pray the families of the victims are cared for by God and by the folks aro...

DIRTY DUCTS In case you missed it, check out Jay Markanich's blog entry "We Just Bought An Efficient New Heat Pump And The House Still Isn't Comfortable" about ducts and their efficiency.   That blog post made me remember that occasionally, one should clean out their ducts, in addition to sealing around them.  Especially if you have children!  Things tend to go down those floor vents and stay in there.   So...today I got the vacuum out, pulled the floor grates off, and cleaned out the 3 floor vents that are the most likely to catch stuff:  in the laundry room by the back door, in the dining room, and in the girls' room.     The floor vent in the kitchen really wasn't bad.  Just mostly dust and dirt, as expected.  It vacuumed out pretty easy (except for the sharp screws!).     The next o...

Ok, I've heard of road rash before, but is this what it is?   This road is very sad that it got a boo-boo on it's forehead.  You can see it on it's face.       You can see it right?  The two dark spots for eyes, the small dark spot in the middle for a nose, and the sad line at the bottom for a frown.     You see it now, don't you?       It made me laugh, so I just had to share!     Poor road!

CHIMNEY CORNER BOARD REPAIR IN WAKE FOREST, NC   We recently performed some closing punchlist work for a new customer through a referral from a real estate agent in Wake Forest, NC.  We did a good job, and the customer asked us to come back to repair all of his rotted trim. This house was foreclosed on a few years back, and sat idle for quite some time.  As a result there were, and still are (but we're working on them) a lot of repairs!    One particular repair I wanted to show you is the chimney corner boards on the highest roof.  Chimney corner boards are notorious for being rotted.  I've yet to meet a chimney that was made out of wood or some wood-type product that didn't have rot on it.  If you know of one, I'd like to meet it.  Make an introduction, will you?   Anyway, we found whe...

...Pollen Season!  The time of year here in NC, where everything turns yellow until it rains!   What do you see when you look at this picture?  A beautiful blue sky?  Me too, and that's why I took the photo.  But I also see some of the most annoying trees God ever made:  pine trees!  As if pine cones and pine straw weren't bad enough, we get POLLEN from these lovely beasts trees.   Here's the first dusting today on my car.  You can find it in the bottom half of the photo, on the left side of my windshield.   I didn't notice it until I used my wipers and the dew dried off.  There it was, the distinctive yellow dust that everyone loves.  The reason that no one around here uses those window screens.  The reason that we have AC standard with every house (yes, AC's not optional around here, ...
