Hot and sunny in Houston again. Plenty of humidity too. I didn’t see what the official high was yesterday, but I did notice my thermometer reading 95F in the sun. That’s plenty hot.
I didn’t do much yesterday. My back was killing me. Did one pickup for the BOL on my way to my client’s house. Fixed his issue, a control box stuck in an ‘off’ condition until pulling the power, waiting, and re-powering. That was a weird one.
Spoke with his wife, their kitchen remodel is pushing off a month or possibly two, due to not being able to get their appliances. Those were ordered last year, for May delivery… and now they are saying August maybe but really probably October. Even the very high end of the market is having supply issues now.
Came home and had a lie down. Didn’t mean to fall asleep, just wanted to get pressure off my spine, but hey, I’ll take sleep when it comes.
Did an email exchange with my septic installer. He’s starting to buy stuff for the system. Still can’t get the drip hose but feels confident about the other components. I reiterated that we’ll pay for the stuff, and he should just buy it.
I’m bidding on some used construction materials for use here in the attic, and small projects at the BOL. I’m thinking of raiding my neighbor’s open top dumpster for used 2x4s from their remodel. Freaking 2x4x8 lumber is $7 at lowes. I’ll be building with pallets and tarps soon if prices don’t come down.
Stack it while you can. You’ll need it.
