Weekend Status and More Demo

June 2, 2008 1 comment

This weekend, I got the flower garden around the house cleaned and “framed” with bricks.  Also, planted a few annuals.  I need to put some bark dust around it, but the bucket was not on the tractor, so that will have to wait.  Demo Diva showed up on Saturday and took out the drywall in the bathroom (picture above) and patched and painted crown molding which RJ finished putting up after 3 days of swearing.  I cleaned the cabinets and shelves.  Most of the cabinets were reused from our renter’s house and no offense to them, but they were quite dirty with kitchen grease and dust.  I had to get them cleaned to move all the kitchen stuff into them before removing the doors and drawers.  I got one side of doors and drawers removed before petering out.  Before picture of kitchen is above.

I took pictures of more farm equipment to sell, etc.  I am posting the “Mini Feeders” and calf stalls on Craig’s list.  Wish me luck.  First picture is that of Mini Feeders.  We have lots.

New Doors

Not our best day as far as progress with the winery.  The glass bowl that we watched being made yesterday did not turn out to Dave’s satisfaction so he won’t let us use it and he might or might not get another one done before he shuts the glass ovens down for the summer.  RJ put up more crown molding and found one whole wall is at the wrong angle and he doesn’t know how to match it now.  I made some phone calls for phone service and found it is very expensive.  I have to find some cheaper alternatives.  I also called about winery POS and had no luck there either.  That said, I did get the second coat of stain on the bar, cleaned up the refrigerator mess caused by 2 bursted Pepsi’s and organized the storage in the chicken coup.  What I have to show you today is the new French doors going out to the patio.  They aren’t completely trimmed out yet, but they look fantastic.  I know you’re tired of hearing it, but it sure makes a difference.  Brings alot of extra light in, too.  George and Chris from Cue Construction did the installation.

I’m back and…

two steps forward; one step back.  I’m back from my trip to Eastern Oregon.  I spent a week in Milton-Freewater to help take care of my Mom and Dad since my Mom just had her 3rd hip replacement (in same hip).  In case, you want to know, she is doing very well and pretty much back to her old self as far as cheeriness goes.  (She went through agonizing pain for two months.)

Back to our little project.  While I was gone, things still moved forward.  On Thursday, we were given our OLCC Winery license…..YEAH!!!!  We’re a winery now!  Also, on Thursday and Friday, RJ and Al put up most of the molding in the tasting room.  It really sets everything off, but like the bar staining; it is just supposed to be there, so it is hard to remember what it was like without it.  Pictures are above.  Then the step back.  RJ had to struggle through my paper filing system (thank goodness for cellphones) to find paperwork for TTB so we could get our labels approved.  Unfortunately, all labels were denied.  We think it is because there is a disconnect between the Brand Name (Plum Hill Vineyards) and the producer (Kramer Vineyards).  We thought we had taken care of that with letters, dba documents, etc., but no luck.  Will have to work on that this week.
