I’ve been giving my house a long overdue overhaul. And it is taking up virtually all of my time.
However, I do have something for you to read. Thomas Sowell has written a four-part series, “Dismantling America”, which makes a lot of the points I would be making if I had time to write anything these days.
Here are the links:
Those are the installments as of this morning — there may be more. I’d love to expand on this discussion, but I just don’t have the time, and probably won’t have the time for at least three more weeks.
For the curious, so far I’ve had all of my entry doors replaced, my old roof ripped off and a new one installed, new gutters installed, the soffits covered, and the exterior trim wrapped in aluminum. A crew is arriving on Monday to gut and completely replace my kitchen and both bathrooms, install new windows and replace some living room drywall that was damaged during last winter’s snow storm.
This week I’ve been shopping for appliances. The big ones are being delivered today, and I’ve been working feverishly to make some space for them, as well as for all the stuff I’ll have to remove from the kitchen before Monday.
After these jobs are done, all I have to do is paint the interior walls and woodwork and refinish the floors. I’m not at all looking forward to doing the latter, so if anybody has any ideas on how to make it easier, I’m all ears.
