We were in such dire need of storage I didn’t even get to finish the shelves before they were filled. Having custom made shelves is amazingly efficient. I even cut around the 2x4s of the wall behind to gain 3.5″ which is a lot of room in a small house. The finish work is small and will likely happen in the next week to 30 years.


All right, all right, the stupid septic is in

State mandated expense of $5500, I’ll avoid bitching too much about it but it’s hard to swallow for the expense and the lifestyle it enforces.

Scar your land with giant trenches dug by an excavator the size of your house.IMG_4957

Thankfully, Vermont abounds with great people. I rode the bucket down the tank pit 😀 I wouldn’t say that the ride was worth $5500 but maybe if I could drive the excavator a bit we’d be there. I got to decrease my bill and learn the ins and outs of my septic system by working alongside Eric & E.J.. I hope people like them never go away.
