Parting is Such Sweet ProHO

Well folks, I just spent half an hour staring at a hole through a blank computer screen trying to come up with how I want to say goodbye to Project Homecoming. I’ve thought about sharing a symbolic worksite anecdote, penning a love letter to caulk, and even reviving my brief yet glorious haiku career. Though… Continue reading

Trees vs. Concrete: No Love Lost

With the inside of Elvira’s house on Flossmoor Drive almost complete, work began today on some fascinating exterior projects I had been saving for a special occasion. Either that or I was dreading the prospect of undertaking them so much that I repeatedly procrastinated and only now was finally forced to figure things out. Whatever… Continue reading

Never Can Say Goodbye

Flossy, What a wild ride it’s been. What can I say after we’ve been through so much together? I can’t lie, when I first looked at you it was far from love at first sight. I think we can both agree you were not easy on the eyes and needed some serious work done.  Furthermore,… Continue reading

The last two weeks have brought much progress. First, I would be remiss to overlook a group from Charlotte who came in and… Continue reading

A Symphony on Flossmoor

Too often the construction process is thought of as a hideous marathon of noise, dirt, and painful labor devoid of any tangible beauty. It is seen as torturous drudgery akin to the physical incarnation of the sound of nails on a chalkboard. The ear splitting wail of a circular saw punctuated only by the thud… Continue reading
