What could possibly be so interesting to these grown men? I mean, they are staring intently at the asphalt! Why, they're deciding on the exact spot for the new gas hook up to the building which will fuel the on-demand hot water unit.

It's funny, these units are wildly popular in Florida and in Europe, but not in Maryland. You do away with the big hot water heater so that this little hot water gadget that is about the size of a large cereal box will supply the hot water.
We arrived on Sunday evening at about 7:30 p.m. So far we've ...
:: celebrated Laura's joy over getting engaged! Matt and Laura were giggling like school kids!
:: met with the general contractor about a dozen times
:: met with the metal roofing guy for an estimate on ribbed metal roofing for the awning
:: went to the retail fixtures place and got a steal on glass shelving units for the enamels
:: made several trips with the car to pick up shelving
:: ordered plastic jars so David can start weighing and labeling enamels to build up inventory in Florida
:: met with the owner of the Foodies store to purchase his reception desk/check out area
:: took several walks in our special areas of St. Pete ... the weather is gorgeous!
It's hard to show you anything substantial about the shop/studio yet, but here's a photo of the bathroom!
Here's the trim on the walls for the retail space.
Here are doors that I've carried hither and yon and will be used in the space. Who knows how ... but I'll figure out a way! My family secretly wishes I'd "lose" those doors!
A great shabby chic display case for jewelry. Love this!
A great folk art kinda thing for beads. Since it's a stepped cabinet, when you pull out each drawer, it doesn't cover up the contents of the beads in the drawer below. Notice the classy water bottle in the background ... gotta stay hydrated!
That's all folks! Talk to you later.
