The truck arrived around 10AM this morning. The guys from Mason Company unloaded everything into our small side yard, then hauled the pieces inside and set up shop.


I’m frankly a lot more excited about the project, now I’ve seen the actual product. It looks Very Pretty. And so far, the work has not disrupted our day-to-day operations whatsoever. The freakishly warm weather (it’s in the high 50s today) does help, as it eliminates any anxiety about having the doors wide open. That said, the fact that this week last year in Chicago we experienced this, and today it’s nearly 60, does give me pause in a hope-the-planet-doesn’t-implode-before-my-kids-grow-up kind of way.

Anyhow, the Mason panels look really nice. I can’t wait to see them take shape.
