I ditched out on golf today. I just didn't want to get up early and rush off, not to mention that we have a ton of work around here.
It has been unseasonably cold this week. Our low overnight was in the mid-thirties. Plus it rained again last night, so the last thing I needed to be doing is slogging around the golf course.
I sent the usual suspects an email yesterday begging off for today. I didn't want to call Some Guy Named Bob with the news because he whines and carries on so.
So, Mrs. Sneed and I spent the day buying landscaping plants and doing planting, along with extending the irrigation lines to the new stuff. It looks great, but summer is not here and that is the acid test.
The other big project that has been weighing on my mind is recoating the roof. Our roof needs to be recoated with a white elastomeric paint-like coating every five years or so. This protects the roof itself and more importantly, reflects the summer heat. Believe it or not, the coating is eligible for a federal and state credit because it is an energy saving techinique.
If I was inclined to do the job myself, it would cost me a thousand bucks in materials and take me about three or four day to finish.
While we were working in the yard a guy from a local company stopped to ask if I wanted an estimate to coat the roof. Some coincidence.
His estimate was $1400, so tomorrow they are coming to do it. They did the preliminary work this afternoon, cleaning the roof and getting it ready to coat.
One less thing to worry about.
