So, It's been awhile. I have been rather busy so far this year. I wish I could say I have been building piles of custom furniture, but that's not the case. I guess I will just give a run down of what I"ve been up to so far this year. Or at least the "high lights"...
Lets start off with the broken down bathroom in my Provo rental. The last tenant moved out and I figured I better get it done before the next tenant got in. With the help of some amazing friends we got the place looking good. Nothing to elaborate, but it's nice for a rental.
During the process, I discovered the door hardware is the original hardware from when the house was built in 1907. Pretty cool... I thought.
Next, Someone decided it was time to pay us a visit. That's right, Baby Avery was born. Not really work related you say? Well, I had a hard time getting much done for the next week or two! She is definitely the grumpiest of the three, but I am sure she will turn out as well as any of my children can! We love you Avery.
I have to throw this in here. My air compressor gave out again, so I decided it was time to upgrade the tank size. The motor was still good and I rebuilt an old pump that I was hanging on to. I guess for those of you that know me, it goes without saying, "It took longer than I thought". I have had something hanging around in my mind. A comment or compliment I received from a long time friend, saying that my work had a "steampunk" feel to it. So I used this compressor rebuild as an outlet in that direction.
Of course it is tax time, that has also consumed some time this first quarter. There has also been a lot of not so glamorous jobs in the mix this year that seem to keep the bills payed. I won't go into detail on those (so I can keep my lustrous "high end" appeal). ;) But I do want those who helped out with those jobs to know I am extremely appreciative.
Last but not least, I had the opportunity to build a mudroom/boot locker/bench thing for some wonderful people this last month. They just got done building their new home and asked me to build this custom fit piece for them. I think it turned out pretty good. Thank you!!! again to the Ballards for hiring Ethereal Furnishings. I hope I brought a little more beauty to your awesome new home.
