Sorry guys, once my camera busted I dropped posting. I guess that comes from the fact I don't like to type just to hear myself. I like to keep the words to a minimum and the pictures coming.
So what happened recently?
Well I've been working on the soffits and getting my miratec fasica boards up. The front of the original house had a small 'casing' detail below the drip edge which I liked, so I continued this detail around the entire house. I painted it and the drip edge to match the 'reddish brown' color of the windows. So that is a lot of up and down the ladder detail work.
So also in the meantime I took delivery of the windows! Beautiful creations built right in Detroit By Kelly Windows. they are traditional wood double hung windows. They are more historically accurate because they sport a larger lower rail then the mid rails. Both sashes move and feature tilt/clean. They are counter balanced with springs and have color matching screens. They also feature double pane, argon gas, low-e glass and some of them are tempered. I Love them. Andreas and I put in the 18 windows in one evening having prepped the openings the days before. I have decided to replace the front 3 windows that i originally planned on saving because these units are so awesome.
okay anything else....I lined up a company to replace my sewer line and that should be soon i hope. Also contracted my HVAC and Plumber. Good guys.
Today I framed up some walls upstairs with my friend Jodi. Maybe half done. I did my washing armpits/singing in the shower impression for her. Also Joe continues to make strong headway on the porch.
