Front End Beautification Project (FEBP)

In the spirit of the federal government, especially when it comes to military campaigns, I've decided to give our new project the recognition that it deserves. This, of course, entails an official moniker: the Front End Beautification Project (FEBP). I hope JH and my Mentor approve. We held focus groups across the country in order to arrive at that designation.

The project will involve finishing the dormers and then the daunting task of translocating that door. The new framing should be fairly straightforward, it's the removing of the door from the framing that worries me. It was easy doing framing on the barn because I could most of it with a sledge hammer and reciprocating saw. This time around, I have to omit the sledge, which means we'll have to employ finesse and grace. We could be flirting with disaster.

The goal will be to finish the FEBP before the frost sets in. Otherwise, it's going to be a cold winter. This should be within the realm of possibilities, though if things don't go according to plan, there will be certain individuals who will not be amused, even if it's the fault of the dumplings.

Until the next time, thanks for reading.
