Many times builders do not carry pencil and paper when working on a project. They write memos, measurements and phone numbers on pieces of wood that will eventually be covered by wall board, paint and wallpaper. Why carry note paper when any available piece of wood will do?
During an in-progress building inspection of the home a client, a major San Francisco commercial office builder, I discovered my telephone number had been written on a wooden stud by the contractor. Who are you going to call when you have questions about interior design? I was honored to be that person. If anyone working on the project had questions about the final interior design, that was the number to call!
My telephone number will soon be covered with plaster and paint, but for now it was fun to see the writing on the wall.
