You may recall an earlier post in which Magpie Ethel (Laurie) and my wife found a mega stash of canning jars and plastic flowers beneath the house in a crawl space. But, we recently found some more stash under the house that I just have an inkling was a sign of early prepping and less hoarding.
Beneath the house were boxes of canned vegetables, many jars of cooking oil, large tins of fire retardant, and other sundries from the mid 1960’s. Given how much other stuff my Auntie had stuffed away in every nook and cranny, it ran the spectrum. This stuff was decidedly different. Maybe I am off but it just had that look of hidden goods that a prepper of today might stash away.
Now re the Cabinets and the Artist fiasco. I did a little research for craftsmen that work on the same style of cabinets we have in the Project House. I found one, well credentialed and high end. We reached out and he was busy until the distant future. Plus he didn’t want to do a renovation, rather preferring to create from the ground up. But, he made a recommendation and that cabinet maker was there early this morning to review the project, the damages and the possibilities. He seemed to have an excellent grasp of the materials, the style, the errors and the fixes. Now we wait for his proposal and if we accept it the time lapse isn’t too bad. It was a good day.
Holes, big holes are being patched by the plaster guys. Everything was protected by plastic sheeting and much was accomplished.
Paint samples in interior walls. A sense of momentum once again.
