The blog was upgraded to the new beta version of Blogger today. If anyone has problems with the page let me know via email or comments.
Upgrading allowed a massive cleanup to the HTML/CSS code template that I had heavily modified. The new system also allows for much easier addition, movement, editing and subtraction of the embeded HTML in the sidebar.
Posts also now can get tagged with a few words that describe the nature of the post like "blog", "vacation", "construction tip", ect. This should make it easier for people to filter out stuff that isn't directly construction related. In addition, the archives widget is now more useful.
The layout is going to get tweaked over the next several days. Please leave feedback about what you like and hate.
