The electrician is relocating my electric meters, and also moving the panels
Well the workers arrived at just about 8:30 a.m. this morning. Since the contractor said between 8 and 9 in the morning, they get a 10 for being right on time.
My grandson asked me to ask Stan why there wasn't a wall and a door dividing his room from mom's room in the plans for the attic. It was Sean's only request when we came up with the idea for the attic. I don't want people walking through my room when they enter the attic up the front stairs. Well I did ask Stan, and he
