2017 Week 7 in Review

Hanging joists on my son’s playhouse has been the most enjoyable step in the saga. In hindsight, should have made the width of the playhouse 96″ edge to edge, instead of having the center of the posts be 96″. The extra 5-6 inches has thrown off the design a little. I’ll also have to spend a little more money on longer decking, only to discard roughly 18″ on each board.

We had nice weather for most of the extended Presidents’ Day weekend. A large band of storms came through last night, soaking the playhouse site and some of my tools got wet in the process. Fortunately, the framing of the deck is basically complete, so I’m out of lumber. Need to make another Home Depot run soon.

Grey and I took a “walk to the water tower” on Saturday. The back of our neighborhood is fenced off as a large nature preserve, since the endangered Golden-cheeked Warbler calls that area its breeding ground for 6 months out of the year. It was a great day to get some sun and fresh air.

This coming week will mark the begin of re-organized teams at work. Our engineering teams have been on the large side, and there was a disproportionately high amount of matrixing across managers and teams. I’m hopeful that uncrossing these wires will further our team productivity. It will also be an opportunity to build new relationships and strengthen existing ones.
