The painter was here most of yesterday priming doors, etc. Indeed the folks from Pella came on Friday and exchanged the six over six sashes for eight over eight sashes. Now all we need to do is get the last windows installed, the clapboards on the house and painted. And, we hope that the propane tank and generator come this week. Syd moved all our trailer out of the way so that Dale will have a open canvas on which to work.

Dave stopped by yesterday afternoon to say he would be back to work on Monday. I don't imagine he'll be here as he is on 'light duty' for several weeks.

Gloomy Friday

Not much new on the house project. The painters have been here off and on to prime doors, screen doors, etc. I'm told that Pella will be here today to bring the correct sash ( 8 over 8) for the windows in the basement room and the two in the stairwells. Mike and Trevor continue to put up siding and hope for continued good weather.

This morning I made the decision to pass on the crown moulding over the windows on the back of the house.....just too busy.

We now have 'some' of the trim painted and this is a very good thing. Not sure what the prospects are for an entirely RED house in 2010. The temps are dropping and that seems to be a minus in the paint window.
