Well, the move to new premises is pretty well complete (a few more boxes to unpack, and that can  drag out :) so I guess it's time to sell the home and shop we custom-built 20 years ago.

2370 sq feet, they tell me (it's around 1200 SF on the main floor, so not huge, but cosy). Has been meticulosly maintained, and it shows!  3 bedrooms up/2 bathrooms with solid oak floors in most of the house, carpets in bedrooms & ceramic tile in kitchen. Lots of oak besides the flooring -  kitchen cabinets and railings, door frames and island, plus large triangular pantry built in to the corner of the kitchen. Sizable storage room under the stairs - metal door and alarm, so legal as a gun vault.  French doors off the kitchen lead to a covered deck (how great is that for barbecuing in  Prince George's winters!).  Great fenced yard with gate gives you easy access to  green space with walking trails. Other features include: Built in vacuum, underground sprinklers. Roof is 4 years old and the house has a 2 year old high efficiency furnace, 4 year old gas water heater.   Very nice gas appliances including fireplace, range and  recent dryer. Downstairs is unfinished, but gyproced and roughed in for another bathroom.. 2 car garage has ceiling mounted gas unit heater, work benches (still room for one or two vehicles in the middle), double stainless sink with varsol pump as well as hot and cold running water. Paved double driveway, and professional landscaping.  The wall mounted bench grinder stays  :)  Professionally-built PWF (treated wood) foundation with a current (this past May) engineer's inspection.  Appraised in the spring at $290,000.    If you get to it before the real estate guys, it's $260,000.  Let's talk!  Can take lots more pics if you need..  Will even take guns in trade!



Armco's revised drop-in/visiting hours are working well!  Wednesday from 1:00 to 3:00, plus Saturday 9:00-12:00 and 1:00-3:00 gives us those times to visit, talk, tinker maybe, have a coffee, without the stress of trying to get a job finished and still keep about three conversations going :)  It has turned out to be a highlight of my week, and I'd like to thank all of you for your support and understanding.  As before if you're traveling through we can make other arrangements  :)  We still take a break from answering the phonesTuesdays and Thursdays and that has really upped productivity, too
