In Saturday’s blog I told you how the subcontractor doing the trenching for the gas lines for our new whole house generator had cut two of the field lines for our septic system the day before. I called Scott and Alan Banks from Banks Construction to come out to see about repairing them, but we […]

What A Mess

Things were going along smoothly with our Generac whole house generator installation on Thursday. The generator was set on its pad, the new breaker box with the automatic transfer switch was mounted on the side of the house and all the wiring was in place, and things were looking good. Then the excrement hit the […]

If your furnace is going to go out, what better (or worse) time than during the coldest weather of the year, right? Ask me how I know this. About 2 AM Sunday morning it seemed cold in our bedroom and I told Terry I had not heard our furnace kick on in quite some time. […]

As I shared with you before, the room at the back of our house that we use as our office was once a deck or porch that some former owner enclosed. While it’s roomy enough for both of us to have our desks in here, and there are plenty of windows giving us great views […]

Scott and Alan Banks, the father and son team that run Banks Construction, were back yesterday morning to finish the new flat deck we had installed off our bedroom to accommodate a hot tub. They got so much done the day before that there really wasn’t all that much left. It didn’t take long for […]

When we left our home in Show Low, Arizona to become fulltime RVers back in 1999, there were many changes in our lives, and while we had to give up some things to live our dream, the tradeoff was well worth it. If there was one thing we both missed most of all it would […]

It was chilly here in Gordo, Alabama yesterday. I don’t think the high got over 50 and there was a steady breeze blowing most of the day. But I really wanted to see how the new DK2 wood chipper would perform, so I towed it to one of the perimeter roads where we had a […]

We hit the ground running yesterday morning and it felt like we didn’t stop all day long. I guess that’s because we didn’t stop all day long. Our day started with a visit from Scott and Alan from Banks Construction, the father and son team that built our deck last month. This time they were […]
