Saw a good saying on a shirt this morning:

Skilled snow plow drivers aren’t cheap
Cheap snow plow drivers aren’t skilled.

That really says it all

Watching the “debate”

Here is my summary:
Wallace: Can’t control the discussion and moderate this debate.

Trump is Trump, we all have our Opinion

Biden is weak, “but look”, flustered,

I am not political, but this is exhausting, I am not sure why the Dems don’t have stronger candidates, guessing the Pence/Harris debate will be better, and hoping to see Harris excel

Fall tip #1: If you have winter ice dams, or use wires to eliminate ice dams , do your inspections, replacements, or installs now while shingles are pliable, and snow does not need to be shoveled, you will have a much better install.

Another good reason why I emphasize so strongly to have your home watched and checked during the off season. This clients home is less than a year old and had a bird strike last week. The bird was found out side the window. Had this been winter the inner pane would have thermo shock and likely come apart leaving the house exposed until your return. Don’t leave your asset with out having made arrangements to have it cared for

This is always the best time of the year, some of nature’s sun kissed beauties. Loved these for as long as I can remember, but looks like a belly ache.

Decided to take a break tonight after a long week of early mornings, late nights, and docks in between. Had to check on a home, so decided on a beverage and to hang to watch the sun go down. Let’s toast to business opening, a economic recovery, and the start of a good summer.

Watching Fox News about protest in Lansing, no social distancing, no masks, crowds gathered, people from all over the state... I understand the right to protest but not the ignorance of these people. Cell phones should be tracked to see if virus spreads as a result. These people were asked to stay in cars. This is the exact reason why this virus is going to continue, as the lock down will need to continue in June. Until people understand social rules, and can follow direction, the economy can not be restarted. Stop being so self centered and selfish!!! We all want to get out, back to work, and have a sense of safety. I will reference Ron White: “You can’t fix stupid.”

Just finished this beautiful deck, overlooking the bay. This will be a wonderful addition to the home for family and guests to make memories on all summer long. Fantastic sunrise coffee location. BBQ, or that happy hour cocktail.

This property is a weekly rental @ Leelanau Cottage and Home Rentals and can be found on air BnB : “Old Mission View”

We had a client approach us to freshen up their kitchen and paint their older dark cabinets. We dismantled the doors and drawers and brought back to our new shop where a paint spray booth was set up. The frames were painted in place at the home.

We will change out hardware after client selects new, but a dramatic new look was achieved. Big shout out to our painting contractor. They always come through and 2XT Services has another happy client. Can't wait for the home owner's return to see in person!

2XT Services has a trailer load of dry, seasoned firewood that we will donate to a northern Leelanau family who is in a dire financial situation. Must heat primarily with wood and unable to obtain wood due to financial circumstances beyond their control. Tentatively plan to deliver tomorrow, 1/24/2020. PM Thad if you are this family or if you know of a family who is in desperate need.

We are looking to add to our staff as we look forward to spring. Become part of our superior home maintenance team with many projects ready to begin. Or join our property management / vacation rental team where we have cleaning opportunities available on Saturdays. We provide all the necessary tools and products, linens as well as transportation from our facility in Omena. If you know someone looking to become part of a great POSITIVE energetic team, and be compensated for their contributions, please reach out or forward them this post.
Our home maintenance team can be an excellent opportunity for an upper level high school student or college student to gain life skills in construction, customer service and quality. All opportunities can grow to full time, year round positions with weekly payroll, and benefits.

This winter we built a firewood wrapper to support our firewood stand just north of the church in Omena.
We have also found that our clients with weekly rentals like to have nice, neat starter bundles for clients

Our machine has exceeded our expectations on speed, consistency, and bundle integrity...

A BIG thank you to Jim Alpers for his support on this project.

In 1977 my parents, Walter and Beverly Gaudette, bought a rundown inn and restored what they could, took down what needed removing and built a family gathering place that we have loved. Over the years it had become a bit tired and needed a complete redo to support our family's future. We asked Thad if he'd be interested as he has done much work for and with Dad in the past. Thad took on the HUGE task of rebuilding the house from the drywall out. He and his guys put in new windows, insulation, sheathing, siding and trim. We also decided to put in a new bathroom and paint the kitchen cabinets, all of which Thad took in stride and added to his work list. We couldn't be more pleased with their beautiful work!! Thad responded to all our MANY, MANY texts promptly and helped us make important decisions on materials. It was so nice to be able to completely trust Thad and his guys with our home and all its possessions as we live downstate. They were incredibly careful with family artwork and the finish work they did inside was beautifully done. We recommend 2XT to anyone!!! Thank you all for restoring our family home!!
These 3 men do excellent work! I own an 1870's Queen Ann house that was remodeled into 3 apartments in the 1950's. We turned it back into a single family. Thad, Nick & Mitch removed some very treacherous stairs, rebuilt them up to today's safety standards and reinstalled all of the original cherry newalposts, handrails and spindles. Their work & attention to detail, whether in trimming out windows or building bookcases, is impeccable. I highly recommend them!
