I looked forward to taking my boys out this morning for a trip to a friends new house which they are remodeling. What a great house, with so much potential! They want us to build them two different vanities for each bathroom and I brought Nathan and Jakob out there to play with their kids while me and my dad measured the spaces for the vanities. Well, my dad measured while I kept my eye on the boys (you never know), and I asked questions when I could. Another outing learning with my dad is nice to spend time with him and also to let me be more prepared to go on my own.
I am going to be measuring more now, and I am definitely up for the challenge. There is a lot to think about and I have been in the cabinet trade now full time for 6 years and I still don’t know a lot. But, each year I learn about 20 new things which I love. You will see me talk a lot about wanting to go out into the shop and assemble cabinets and that is something I am really begging to do right now. I am always in the office and I have to a least know how the cabinets are built, which I do but I need to physically go out into the shop for myself and do it in order to create more credibility. As you read a few days ago the “male shovinists” are alive and well and coming into my office! This is just another way for me to prove myself although I shouldn’t have to, but because I live in the “Real World” I am going to.
Have a productive day!
