This week I am working in Arcadia helping a childhood friend of mine finish renovating his home. He has been working on the project for the better part of a year, but he has got to a point where he needed some help. There are just some things that he wanted to do in the house that he couldn’t do on his own, and he enlisted my help.
It was a good excuse to get out of work for the week.
While I am helping with some of the work, there are things that I will not be doing. For example, he has someone coming in to do the Windows Replacement in Arcadia as neither of us have ever replaced windows before. In those types of cases, it makes more sense to hire an expert as it saves both time and the possibility of screwing that part of the renovation up. We’re both man-enough to admit when there is a job we can’t handle, and thankfully there is talent in the area that can do the work we can’t.
We are hoping to get most of the work done here by the end of the week because I need to be back at work on Monday. It has been a good week – working by day and visiting by night. I am lucky I had the opportunity to come help him out.
