Currently, we’re warming up to get started on the Nash house. We have a mysterious potential buyer who’ll influence how we do the renovation. More on that later, if you can stand the suspense.
In the meantime, dust and debris still rain down on the floors at the Hermit Haus building, even while we keep having meetings there. The intrepid Mike and his some-time sidekick, Randy, spent last weekend removing the ceilings in the conference room. As always, it was a mighty messy proposition. I’m always amazed at how well Mike puts everything back together when he is done!
But, the ceiling looks great now, and really impressed the people who met in there Sunday, right while poor Mike was trying to finish cleaning up. They kept asking me if we were going to leave it like that, since it looks so cool, and I told them they’d convinced me to do it (even though that’s been the plan all along).
The only casualty was one of the electrical outlets, which stopped working. Since it was one of the iffy ones in the weird cluster, that was probably for the best. We are all looking forward to the new electrical work going in, which starts once the ceilings are done. That one will require permits and all the official stuff.
Since the air conditioning duct blocks most of the light from the lone fixture in that room, Lee authorized the purchase of two nicer fixtures for the conference room (nicer means it’s better than the contractor pack of nipple lights currently gracing the whole basement). They should be there by now, so we’re hoping to get them installed this week. Hoping.
We Know Who We Are, Because We Have Labels
More excitement is that we got nameplates for each of the office doors, so people will know what’s in there. We also have conference room signs. They are Hermit Haus Red, too.
The Exit signs we got (not shown because I’m annoyed at them) are not cooperating, so we are going to have to put them in frames. You get what you pay for, but they ARE very legible.
And, since Mandi is finished installing locks on all our office doors, the important documentation and sensitive files we don’t have yet but will in the future for the Hearts, Homes, and Hands business will be safe whenever there are events in the building. And my shiny pieces of glass will also be safe.
Let’s see what’s next! Remember to let us know if you have information on any houses we might want to buy in the Austin or Cameron areas. 512-877-8077! We are still looking, even during our intentional slowdown.Hermann says please like and share!
