As I finish up a month’s long project of working on my daughters rooms, I realize that I am not a detail person. I’m sure my wife could speak to this issue but let me tell you. I like the big stuff. The loud, dangerous, dirty, building stuff. It seems more fun and has cooler toys. Two of my favorite tools have to be the most dangerous things on earth. First, I like a reciprocating saw. Some call it a Sawzall because, well…it does. What could be more awesome and destructive as an open blade going back and forth at breakneck speed that can cut through…ALL. Second is a Powder Actuated Nailer or Hammer Shot. This is an actual gun that one uses to affix just about anything to masonry. It uses weapon caliber loads to “shoot” nails. Giddy as a school girl!
Well those tools are typically used in the beginning of a project. I am at the end. On to the pretty stuff. My world is now sanding, painting and ceiling texture. These tasks all require a much lighter hand and a lot less fun. (I mean, c’mon, shooting and sawing?)
So, last night I’m putting up ceiling texture. Unlike the demolition (saw) or framing (nailer) I have to gently use a brush to change the texture of the ceiling. UUGGH!
Please let me finish this darn thing soon so I can move on to the next project which may start with, wait for it…the big stuff.
