Hello, Friends. So sorry to have kept you hangin’. Although it’s been quiet on the house front the past few weeks, I have been itching to write. And today is as good as any. Actually, its better than any, because today:
THE KIDS ARE ALL BACK IN SCHOOL!!!!
THE SIDERS HAVE ARRIVED!!!!!
Both developments are nothing short of fantastic! The kids are back having their minds engaged, and my house is back to getting whipped into shape. And I am back with a few hours to myself for posting and tackling the piles of laundry/detritus from the long weekend. So happy to have some good news to share!
Since my last post, the only house things that were worked on were the balconies. I snapped a few shots:
I really wasn’t too upset to lose the rotten joists… We all know Rotten=Bad. But, there’s another side to the story (literally). And that would be INSIDE. Only look if you are brave!
Why the inside invasion? Because we are wanting the new balcony to look like the old one design-wise (cantilevered), and that means new joists must run two times the length of the balcony inside. Here’s one reason to remodel the exterior of a home before the interior! Live and learn!
There will also be a mini balcony off the upstair’s loft. Just enough space to swing the door open and sing to the tree-tops if so inclined!
Well, that’s about it for progress. The dining space is still under quarantine, so the rest of the main floor is suffering the consequences of misplaced furnishing until the area is patched and painted, and we can put it back together. Kind of a drag, but it should be remedied in the next few weeks -Yay!
And it’s almost time to get the kids! Where did the day go? The guys have been hard at work. I haven’t even stepped out to see what they have done, but from the sound of things inside, it’s been a lot! So look for a post in the not-too-distant future about our siding progress. Liking the way that sounds!
