Enter my son, Ben, a year and a half ago who decided to that as long as I fed him, he would help with the project. We then spent that time finishing the house. We manufactured baseboard molding out of oak and installed it; had carpeting installed; built ash kitchen and bathroom cabinets; built a thick teak countertop in the kitchen; built a set of ash bookshelves; and any number of small projects. Ben has become an accomplished woodworker in the process.
Many months and a smashed thumb later, we were finished. We moved my in other son, Sam and girlfriend, Emily into the house. Ben and I moved to Texas the beginning of August to finish the boat. This will take several months.
These aren't the boat pictures, they're the completed house.
To anyone who asks "when will the boat be finished?" I simply answer "Three years ago last January!"
