Filth and Chaos

Oh, god. That's the floor of my studio at present. Liberally strewn with sawdust, plaster dust, gypsum dust, mice droppings, and most of the power tools we own. The electricians finished running the conduit out to the studio and installing a sub-panel, an in-wall heater, and in the ceiling, 13 recessed lights and an air-exchanger/ventilator. That was A LOT of holes in the walls and ceiling, which I am, 2 days in, finally getting close to finished repairing. Then will come massive clean-up, followed by the construction of a bookshelf running along the length of the building under the windows, for books and storage. Followed by more clean-up. I just need to power through and finish it all up so I can get back to work. Sigh. While it is satisfying to grow my general contracting skills, it's also really TIRING. I'm girding my loins to re-enter the fray . . . it's just that it's a sunny Saturday and what I really want to do is work in the garden . . .
