The Framers Arrived!
The wood for the flooring system was delivered by Shapard Lumber, the only remaining independent lumber company in Columbia. All the others succumbed to the onslaught of Lowe’s & Home Depot. Not Shapard!
The other reason I love Shapard Lumber, the owner is the newly-retired organist from the historic Methodist Church of Columbia. David is a treasure. His precious wife – oh my goodness! Sydney is a stained glass artist & she’s a card! Too funny! Petite, beautiful, oh my goodness!
Johnny, our builder, is a member of the historic Methodist Church in Columbia also. Carole sings in the choir there & wants us to sing a duet. Maybe this summer.
Harry, the supervisor, at work.
As I approached, Harry hollered out, “Come dance with me!” We could have, the flooring space was so large! (Harry is a fabulous dancer! He even made me look semi-good at #3 son’s wedding reception.)
We have a floor! We’re going to have a house!
