A couple of nice days and some good workers and viola - the farm house is now officially 'covered!'
And, if you take a quick look at the portico (that little roof structure over the door on the left) and compare it to the picture below you might be able to notice a difference or two.
If you go back to the newer picture, you might notice that the portico is squarer and not leaning forward quite so much. Nice work, Duncans!
Wednesday was a special day for us because we took the last of the pile of old siding away from the house. There is still more clean-up to do, but it isn't the big stuff. I will say that neither of us is really looking forward to cleaning out the perennial flower beds around the house. There will be plenty of nails, etc that we'll be encountering during that process. We have some metal to put in the recycling pile and the scaffolding needs to get put away. Other than that, we just wait until weather warms so we can do all of the caulking, touch-up and window painting / maintenance.
Oh.. and do some of the other 'discovered' things too. What'd you expect? It's an old farmhouse!
