Good Morning! (Builders, That Is)

I can't say enough good things about Alastair Aylward and his Good Morning Builders crew--Gilberto, Justin, and Doug.  And our neighbor Mark. After months of indecision, intermittent activity, and a bit of faffing about, now, in less than two weeks, the shop is a reality.

Roof on, windows in . . .

I grabbed a few pictures when I took down some muffins yesterday morning, thinking to get the whole crew in shot when I came back after Josie's nap.

But by the time we woke up, the crew was done. And gone.

There's still work to be done, of course--trim, doors, insulation, etc.--but John and Justin can do that.

Check out the re-purposed door, set in as a window.

And the gorgeous big basement --room to bring the tractor in. As you saw from past posts, we had lots of help here from Josh and Lisa and Bob and Shayne and Doug and Justin and Claui.

And the wonderful, airy shop interior. John, of course, is planning on where to put what tools and machinery, but I'm envisioning it draped with quilts and tables set up for another Easter party. If not in 2021 (and I'm not holding my breath that Covid will be under control by then,) perhaps in '22.

So much to be thankful for!

Vicki -- congratulations! So glad the building got to the point it is mostly inside work. There are sime incredible builders in our mountains!

Wow! They do great work! I'm so glad you got the roof on and windows in before Zeta comes over.

Fantastic! Oh, I see there's even a third level where that repurposed door lets light in. Sadly I think you're right about the COVID possibilities. Wouldn't it be nice if the vaccines worked right away and were available soon? I don't think it's realistic though.
