Go, Hawkeyes!

January 11th, 2015 · 1 Comment

The Iowa Hawkeyes football team finished their season with a 7-6 record, losing in the Taxslayer Bowl on January 2nd.  They remain well-loved, however.  Here’s a big Hawkeyes fan in Des Moines, Iowa.

Quality Craftsmanship

The house addition looks just fine.

The other side looks just as good.  No problems with the roof or with earth-to-wood contact.  The termite inspection should go well with no concerns.  Right?

The room addition at this house looks good too.  Think of all that valuable extra square footage.

Added-on section to a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania home.  Another winner!

It looks funny.  Maybe because it isn’t a square window.

Lots of photos of family members will be taken this holiday season.  Many will be on display.  Some, unfortunately, when selling.  [Lake City, Florida]

Virtual white-out is expensive.  I used a full bottle to blot out these two persons.  That’s one big photo.

Thank you to our reader Barb for sending us this photo of a North Judson, Indiana bathroom/laundry/utility room.  You can accomplish so much here.  Since there’s no toilet paper in sight, perhaps they use dryer lint to wipe?
