Let There Be Light

I finally bought the light fixture for over the dining room table.

I looked around but really liked the pole mount that is available at

They are having a sale and free shipping until Monday and let you customize in tons of different ways. I like the wood veneers and this one with the Japaneese cane, but Justin wasn't having it so we went simple and clean with the white linen.

A place for everything, and everything in its place.

It's been a while, but I'm back folks!! Justin here, making my second guest blog appearance.  Things have been a little slow lately on the construction front, so with some of this extra time we've started organizing our belongings and established where we can put all our extra stuff so Lori doesn't have to keep asking 'what are we doing with this?' 

With winter right around the corner, I decided we needed a wall mount rack for the boards in the basement. I picked up the Pegboard courtesy of Lowes, and bought the support arms from the 'going out of business' sale at The Fabric Store in the 'ham. Total cost: $5.50

The main reason I purchased the pegboard was to start my tool wall in the bike workshop. The wall looks kinda empty, so I think Santa might need to make a stop at the hardware store before sliding down the chimney.
