Ben’s baby brother is living here in Laurel these days, learning all the ropes of the woodshop and trying his hand at full time carpentry. When he’s not in the woodshop he’s always looking for anything to make a little extra money on the side, and I’m grateful that he doesn’t mind when we keep him busy around here helping us at our house while we are filming long hours every weekday. The backyard and garage both look incredible, and I walked outside to find him washing my very dusty and dirty car this morning.
