All I wanted for Christmas…

.

Was for the Barn Mahal bar to be finished. Seeing that we came home and discovered its beginning framework in place in mid November….

.

.

I didn’t think that would be too much to ask. But alas, our builder didn’t agree.

Oh, he’s sent updates via text messages.

.

.

Like the layout of the rough unfinished boards on his shop floor.

I thought the 3 graduating colors would be interesting…

.

.

Until he sent the next update of those boards being sanded and glued. Bye bye color.

.

He assures me work is progressing steadily and that he hasn’t forgotten us, but it seems the only way I’ll be bellying up for a toddy will be like this:

Cheers!

    1. I don’t know, my track record for picking the right stain is abysmal. And as far as the sawdust goes…. the husband refused to turn off the heat pump when he was working in there so we still have plenty circulating in the air…. even after cleaning the filter.

  1. A McMerry Christmas to you and hubby.
    I hope you’ll soon be dispensing bubbly
    from behind your finished Barn Mahal bar.
    If not, you’d better wish upon your lucky star
    that your contractor gets his act together
    before it becomes a matter of whether the weather
    keeps him from getting there till summer
    which would surely be a bubbly McBummer.

  2. Like I always say: punctuation matters!
    By the way, we signed our construction contract in April… they’re starting the drywalling on Monday. In other words, I didn’t get my two new rooms for Christmas either. 😦 I did get a remote car starter installed, though! 🙂
