Self destruction

 America continues down its painful road to self destruction with both matters large and small, its all so desperately sad.

New tricks.

 I've been out the building game for a few years now and it's time to take up my tools again as circumstances and boredom dictate. I've used the enforced isolation here to start making decisions both large and small about the new project we are embarking on in Feb. One thing I will not be doing is making the large investment into the government recommended (mandated?) use of air or ground source heating. No matter how much they push this over complicated expensive crap I will have nothing to do with it unless forced. I have experience with these systems and they both are much better in theory than practise. If we had access to gas then that would be first on my list but we do not so oil it is....there is something comforting about having 6 or more months of oil on hand!

A brighter future

 I watched the kids here playing catch the laser on NYE and was happy in the thought that they face a much brighter future in 2021, so yet again....onwards and upwards.

Out of my depth

 The new house has/had a pool, the kids are wondering when is Dad/uncle going to get this sorted? well I've got until I get the keys in January to figure out just whats going on  here and how to fix it, if I get it done quickly I can start on the real work while the little sproglettes are occupied....sounds like a plan...yet again!

Old dog new tricks.

 After much toing and froing the new house/project I've been after is going to be mine come the end of Jan and so the process of planning is already in hand. The main house has an art deco vibe going on and we plan to accentuate and work with the existing theme but it also has a rather badly built annex which I'm hoping to replace with something like that shown in pic below. Its way way out of my usual area of expertise but I've been feeling rather trapped in my ways and I feel like I have one more good multi year job in me, so glass and zinc it is......fingers crossed.
