    Good stuff, Nick.

    I'm hoping to see MORE of that in 2012, because that means I'll be working!

    Happy New Year!

    Now that is funny. During December and January I say the same thing until work picks up and then wish for all the 3000 sf 5 year old empty, non foreclosure, clean, all utility on type homes

    Don't worry, Nick. Chimneys like that can't last forever.

    One possible reason for the plank shims? The block wall was built to upgrade an old house on posts. The last course was shimmed to fit tight. It doesn't much matter why, though.

    Great pictures!
    I hope we all see more homes and fewer problems than last year.
