Looks Can Be Deceiving
One small car...
One load of materials...
and no worries, we got it all in with only one wee problem. I thought I got an 8' fence post, it turns out is was a 9 footer. I knew that the trunk wouldn't close, I only have clearance for 8' so my helper took the post back in and had them cut a foot off.
I had to laugh, while my helper was in getting the post cut I loaded up the car with my materials then stood outside of the car with the trunk open so my helper could put the post in. An elderly gentleman was walking by and happened to glance at my trunk, he backed up bent over and took a good look at my load, he said "Holy thunderin', you have the whole lumber store in there!" I laughed and told him that looks can be deceiving. My G5 has been an excellent car, it's hauled some pretty amazing loads, the gas mileage is fantastic and after almost 5 years I can still beat the kids off the red lights!
One more day and this reno should be done, this is the goal and I'm not going to say a word about the weather, nope not one single word!
