Archive for November, 2009

So as November rolls around, we still have a lot of good weather projects left unfinished. On the other hand there are a few projects that are finished. So here is the done list:

– Removed all concrete from the porch foundation. Put it on craigslist and someone actually picked it up for free. Didn’t have to lift a finger. Thank you
