Since the project started in the winter, the plan was to enclose the addition as quickly as possible, so they could work inside in bad weather. The scheduling of subs and ordering of materials to keep a steady flow in construction, not only for this job but for others my contractor has, is amazingly complex and it's really fun to watch it unfold. There's still a ways and a bit of trauma to go before it's all over.
I don't have much time to write tonight, so I'll let the pictures do the telling of what's been happening this week.
Delivery of more siding
These fixtures are available to a good home!
The Electrician is about to relocate where the power comes through the ceiling for a different style chandelier that will be put in after painting.
Meanwhile, in the new rooms, Dry Wall Man has taped
all the seams and just installed the rounded corners.
Cats seek a safe place in the sun away from the activity.
It's beginning to overload their usual curiosity.
The new siding doesn't have the same spacing as the old siding,
so some old siding will be replaced. I think that'll happen
Thursday, since Tom is off Wednesday.
Tom has installed a door to the under-house storage and is working on trim pieces.
It's a real door!
It's pretty wood, but I guess it'll be painted.
Taking a few things along for quilt camp . . .
Stuff in my kitchen that's also waiting to be put in the car . . .
Peanut butter has been restocked at the store. Desperation is over!
Texture on the ceiling . . .
Looks like the walls have the measles (I'm easily fascinated).
Light and angles
Tom is out there on the ladder.
Wild winds are happening in much of California. Ours
is cool and brisk but not damaging like elsewhere.
Leaning Tower of Pizza (I jest)
And there we stand, on the verge of quilt camp. Things will happen when I'm away, but I'm not expecting a finish. I think there's another month, at least.
See you soon.
