Yes We... finish floors

It hasn't been all work and no play. we took a night off to take the Boys to the Big Game, the world famous Harlem Globe Trotters. Harry was very disappointed in Justin for a.) gambling b.) betting the Washington Generals were going to win. Justin felt they were due for a win, maybe next time?
Walker, Harry, Jackson Keaton & Justin
Great seats? well at least we could see the whole court.

The sanding, the staining, the polyurethane I thought would never end... but it's finally over. The floors are done and they look Great! its was so worth it. Although we now fell like when were not working on the house we are living in Home depot.
now back to the kitchen...
Mom & Bryon ready for some fun
My dear brother Bryon is so talented. With a saw & mallet he can make anything happen, a little unconventional but whatever works huh?

With a quick trip to St. George for the Parade of Homes we made some decisions on some features we want to add to our new house.
Like this modest Pool, donations welcome!

OMG! There is a Burger God!

We are so excited to fined this article in SL Trib on the 11th. Can you believe it. There is a Burger God!

IN-N-OUT Burger is making plans to bring its popular, never-frozen patties, saucy "spread" and fresh-cut fries to Draper.
The California-based company filed an application Wednesday to open its second Utah restaurant in the Draper Peaks shopping center.
The proposed burger joint could open as early as the fall, an IN-N-OUT spokesman said.
The company liked the area's growing population and the success of the IN-N-OUT in southern Utah that opened 10 months ago, said Carl Van Fleet, executive vice president for planning and development.
The Draper site is a good fit for IN-N-OUT because it's close to and visible from Interstate 15 and in a busy area with lots of retail stores, he said.
"We think it will be a great place for us," Van Fleet said Wednesday.
Still, he said, the company is looking into opening more restaurants in the Salt Lake City area.
The company's 229 stores in four states are family-owned and operated.
IN-N-OUT's application is scheduled to be considered March 5 by the Draper Planning Commission. Its approval is thought to be a given. Then, the company would apply for its building permit, said Assistant City Manager David Dobbins.
If all goes well, the company plans to start construction in "two or three months," Van Fleet said. He added that the plans are still in process, and "there's still a lot that we need to do" before the deal is closed.
"I appreciate everyone wants to know, but I don't want to make any promises we can't deliver," he said.
Draper residents are going to be excited about the news of the burger joint moving in, Dobbins said.
About two years ago, residents suggested in a survey that IN-N-OUT, Target and a sushi restaurant are businesses they'd like to see in Draper, he said.
In May, Dobbins said he and other city leaders met at a conference with IN-N-OUT executives about opening a store in Draper and kept in touch with them.

Yes We Sand

Work on the house goes forward with much enthusiasm. An Army of Family came to help. I hope we haven't ran out our welcome for Help in one weekend.
The Before Photo
as my Father so enthusiastically named "The Nursery"
Lots of glue and grim for the years gone past... yuck... very slow moving to sand this crap off
The kitchen is slowly moving out of the Christmas season. With Help from Shazell
Of course I did my fair share of sanding (and will continue)
Help from Mike with "The Nursery" gets sanded to become the "NOT A NURSERY!"
but thanks for the suggestion after suggestion after suggestion.
We try to scrap the glue?
Justin is a bit more positive about the sticky situation of scraping glue.
I on the other hand, I thought it was hopeless.
Well back to the sweatshop kids, Jackson & Walker get to work.
Bryon is fixing the carport... what part of fixing includes him holding it up with his bare hands.
Justin takes a long turn on the floor sander. all day Sunday!
The After Photo (before the staining process that is)
to be continued...
