Ken was jealous; he wanted to be able to be home to watch them put it up. I took lots of pictures, and a couple movies as things were happening. Imagine my surprise when the crew that showed up was four Amish Men (Well, three, actually. One of them was only 16. In my book that's a teen/boy
) They arrived just about 7:30 a.m. and was piling in the truck to head back towards Clare, Michigan at 4:00 p.m. The longest task was the shingles and the siding; which, btw, is a lot lighter than I anticipated. Oh well; Made my choice, I have to stick with it. Also, I noticed that the doors are vinyl covered, as well as the trim around the doors and windows, so they will be remaining white, rather than my original plan of doing the regatta bay. Such is life.
They were a delight to have here, doing the work, and the conversations were great. I told my rep that if I had any other work that had to be done, I would be requesting these gentlemen. The hardest part was writing the check for the balance owing. That stung a bit, (alright, quite a bit. I liked seeing that big chunk o' change in my savings account, and now it's all gone
)but - it was also worth it, as it took eight hours, rather than weeks/months to get completed.
