I lied...but it's not my fault!

I said on this post that we should see "light" coming from the treehouse by Wednesday.

By Saturday afternoon, Chris had the trench for the powerline all dug. See!!

On Sunday, we had a surprise warm-up and our 1st treehouse picnic. It was glorious (even without the interior finished).


Our little treehouse project doesn't quite get top priority with our electrician. Perhaps early next week? Shall we take bets on power?

XOXO

This is a familiar story. It appears our smallish projects are always on the bottom of the list of contractors. I wonder if they would like to wait to be paid? It will be worth the wait I am sure...smiles...Renee

Good things come with time...I am sure you will have light soon and think of all the fun summer evenings that will be spent here.
