Summer & Fall 2017:
2018 contractor work:
Aaron did considerable work constraining the dimensions of the garden around the front porch, as well, and moving plants around as needed between gardens. He also repaired one of the raised beds, but a new one failed this year (bottom fell out) so we'll likely be reducing the number of them next spring. He also continued work on his carriage house workshop.
I was expecting our window restorer Andrea to arrive this morning and work on window re-installation.
Instead, Andy showed up unannounced and installed a door.
There's a parable in there somewhere.
In early 2019, Andy installed the oak baseboards in the kitchen & bathroom, which means we have complete trim in the house for the first time. And... that was it.
There's a lot of paint stripping to be done on trim, and some hallway / stair repainting to be be done. That's waiting on time (in warm weather, because ventilation). We still have a laundry list of windows to restore. That's waiting on money.
It was an excellent 7-year run, but we've hit the pause button for now and I'm fine with that.
