#229: Rob

Rob is a coworker, who just so happens to be pretty amazing when it comes to home renovation. He spent some time working on my house this past week, helping us clean up and improve our utility area. Rob tiled the floor, pulled down some old paneling, built a wall, fixed electrical outlets, hung cabinets, AND built me a laundry dresser to boot-- work that would've been extremely challenging (maybe even impossible) and time consuming for us to tackle on our own. Now that the work is done, that space feels truly like a new room in our home-- the space is so much cleaner, brighter, warmer, and friendlier. We're thrilled with the work he's done.

In addition to his skills as renovator, Rob is just a great guy-- generous, kind and funny. He showcased all of these qualities this week: fixing a broken paver we've ignored Phil Dunphy style, brought us vegetables and cupcakes, making all the Home Depot runs to pick up the supplies we needed. I'm of course thankful to know Rob because he's helped us out hugely with out house, but when it comes down to it, I'm just thankful to know Rob.
