Carenen Cottage Construction

The modest addition to the Carenen Cottage continues, but it won’t be done by the time school starts next week for my long-suffering wife (LSW), Lisa. We DO think we’ll have the laundry room ready so we won’t have to drive to the laundromat to get our laundry washed and dried. To my surprise, I enjoyed my visits to the Travelers Rest laundromat. I always take a book and enjoy observing and interacting with the clientele. There’s the possibility they find me amusing, too. Or just weird, especially when they see me sorting through women’s unmentionables.
 
But I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the workers who have been making our addition a reality. We have had graders, framers, electricians, plumbers, roofers, drywallers, and siding people so far. We will, soon, have flooring people, tile guys, and painters (who might be us). With one exception, they have all been hard workers, pleasant, and skilled. We’re very happy with the work they’ve done.
 
What’s appealing is that these men have been white, brown, and black. They all worked hard and well with good attitudes, seeming to enjoy their labors, earning well-deserved wages. How cool is that?
