I am glad that Bardi is doing better! I know what you mean about building and dogs, even my Angel likes to know all of what we are doing on the parts of the house that are under-construction. There is just so much to get into. Especially when you have windows and such stacked about until you are ready to put them in place. I currently have a vintage 30's stove that I am refurbishing to put in the kitchen. I love vintage things in new construction as well as old.
Good luck I hope you do well on your next shows! He deserves to be a GR Champ!
