Yesterday you saw my gorgeous photo and truly that is the way the day started at 7'ish in the morning. Before Dan, our helper, showed up at 9:30 it had started to snow. But with great determination and perseverance those windows went in.
How's that for dedication? We only had one day with Dan, our helper, to help lift those heavy windows. The two to the right of Sherwin took all three of us to manage but they are in and do they ever look good. There are no photos of that operation because the photographer had to help heave and hoist those bruisers into place.
When Sherwin and I had finished installing the windows on the north-west side of the house today he was so happy he did the chicken dance for me!!
And then he stood back and surveyed the day's work. Oh yes, the black hole on the right hand side there isn't finished...that is the bathroom window and that stretch of roof is mighty slippery when there is even moisture in the air, let alone moisture on the roof.
So you see that we are making some progress. Now the scaffold on the left is moved to the other side of the portico and we are working on those windows. Before we leave on Friday all windows will be installed, Lord willin' and the creek don't rise!
To close I will throw in one more photo of the beginnings of the railing going in from the front entry up to our new studio. We are as excited as kids at the fair every time we make a step forward in this project.
Have a great week!
