I’m ready to cry Uncle.

.

First it was not at all temporary temporary doors. Then insulation and a ceiling and new light fixtures and floor moulding and quarter round.

Now?

.

.

The husband is installing strapping to cover the plywood ceiling seams.

.

.

Technically this is finish work. And we all know that is not where his talents lie.

.

.

Was the strapping straight?

.

.

Not so much.

.

.

Of course when I helpfully pointed that out, I got booted from the barn/man cave/Maine Taj Mahal.

.

.

When I went back 2 hours later? He informed me the strapping wasn’t right and needed to be redone.

.

.

Hmm. Why didn’t I think of that?

.

.

Cutting and more cutting.

.

.

Cutting around the light fixtures I tried to tell him to center 2 weeks ago.

.

.

But all the cutting resulted in straighter lines.

.

.

Aggravating? No doubt.

But…

.

.

We did have gorgeous fall foliage in the background so I’ll call it a win.

  1. Hmmm. In the same situation as you I’d point out the problems. Must have straight lines. Would repeat message until lines were straightened. Would praise the straightener of the lines when lines were straightened, but not before.
