Building A Home [3]

So whats more fun than building a home and having to wait countless days for things to be installed and/or completed? A lot of thing – a very large sum. And I would have rather been doing any of them. Nonetheless, it is what it is.

HVAC
The HVAC guy started today. I like him so far. Good sense of humor and he’s related to and seemingly as responsible around time as my electrician. I like those combos because I can call one guy with an update/info and know both of them will get it and coordinate. We’re looking a 2-3 worth of work to get all the ducts in and as soon as I get the new vinyl & windows on the house he’ll bring in the actual furnace, etc.

Plumber
Looks like plumbing got pushed back a week because one of the guys workers quit on him unexpectedly. Don’t know if that means he’s a bad guy, or to keep his costs down he works his guys cheap so they leave – obviously hoping for the later. Cheap labor is good labor when you’re the one paying.

Vinyl, Windows, & Roof
Looking at quotes for everything right now. Everyone wants to take everything as a large job but so far I only liked one guys prices – of course he informs me he isn’t insured during my general inquiry. Thats what I need – put all my money into a house so I can have this guy fall off a ladder and end up owning it all after a lawsuit – no thanks. đŸ™‚

General
Looking to get in contact with my GC tomorrow around getting certain things wrapped up. The man has 1/2 the money and I haven’t seen him in several weeks. Patience is wearing thin, and the longer he’s away the more jobs he’s losing out on since I end up GC’ing them myself (HVAC, plumbing, vinyl only to name a few).

More to come people – but I figured after 90 days of nothing I could get away with 1 post without pictures. Thanks for the interest.

Lil Dicky – Ex-Boyfriend

Song made me an instant fan for being hilarious. Video wasn’t bad either – good job Lil Dicky! A must share.

PC + Wireless XBox Controller

So – on a 9 hour outage call for work and in between having being completely hopeless about the issue ever being resolved and running around deciding whether or not to put my head through a wall I am browsing Reddit and look what I stumble across!

If you have an XBox 360 you must have some wireless controllers – and if you also happen to be a computer gamer you’ve probably had the same thought as me around wanting to play certain games with a controller on your computer, but not wanting to spend to $50 on a XBox PC controller. Well, problem solved. Watch the below video and check out how Windows 7/8 & a small and cheap device found on eBay or Amazon just solved your problem – and saved you some cash!

Today

Pretty cool website that, via a series of simple instruction and clicks, gives the viewer a context of time – specifically today. See how insignificant ‘today’ can feel, while at the same time experiencing how significant ‘time’ is. It’s a fun and informative way to spend 5 minutes of your day if you get a chance to break away.

[Here Is Today]

The Dark

Dark room, lit up only by the street light’s peering through the blinds.
A man, tired but not sleepy enough to give up on the day, laying on his bed.
Nothing to do, yet not willing to stop his mind from racing.
The only things accomplishing anything are the hands on the clock.
Why fall asleep? Only wake to another day of repetitive actions.
Work – never ending – task upon task await.
The dark keeps it away but eventually he succumbs.
Repetitiveness is the only way to survive.
