We’re done with the foundation, and we don’t worry about our house falling down…
But winter’s close and the biggest problem that we have, are the windows.

Week passed, busy with my project of heat upgrading before winter will come. I wanted that all painting will be done before installation of heating system and hardwood…. But all step by step…

The choice

It is hard to choose what to fix first. But roof and windows can wait, because if we will lose foundation, we lose whole house. Short research about who can help to fix foundation gave funny result, closer guy who may be will interesting to fix foundation is 200 km away and price will be probably from 15000 CAD and up. Little bit too much.

The inside

Inside the house it look not so bad, if we compare with outside.
We have 2 wood fireplaces , 1 in dinning room, 1 in master bedroom

Looks like some renovation almost finished and I had a visit to furniture shop today. Just for browsing around, may be to find some ideas ….I was looking for a couple chairs what we can place in front of a fireplace…
Think about massive and old style… and of course comfortable to sit, to relax, to watch the fire and may be to dream in winter time. Found one that looked very close to what I was imaging.

But when I looked closer….

I called sale person and asked about these strange holes..
She looked at me like I’m guy from small village and have first time to see cultured furniture.


I was shocked. To make circle holes and put square pieces of wood inside… these pieces not tide inside? 1000 bucks chair, has 8 holes and technically I understand why these holes were made for, but on practice I don’t understand why they fixed so bad?

For me it looks like
- Bill, what we will do with this pile of garbage at front of the house?
- Nothing Bob, we have no time to clean up, say to the customer its new landscape design.
