A Week Gone By . . .Quickly

With on-again, off-again skies this week we spent more time in than outside. . .

Made for dramatic clouds though, didn't it?

We did spend one day in town purchasing supplies and stocking the pantry.

We started on the ceiling in the stairwell area.  The soffits on the original house are cedar tongue and groove boards.  To tie everything together we have gone with the same look for the addition.  The carport itself will call for 1550 square feet of these boards but we started on a small area.  Sherwin took each board, sanding it down and...

trimming the edges to make for a bevelled look.

He then sent each board over to the staining station where I made them look good and within hours...

Sherwin started installing the boards.  That ceiling is done and we are pleased to have taken a deep breath and started on our house again.  The project looked somewhat overwhelming when we first arrived home on the 28th.  But now we are back into it and feeling quite at home again.

- Emily Dickinson

Hope your week went well for you.
God bless and be well.
