More Plastic Strips

I spent about two more hours putting up another 25% of the plastic strips last night- the most difficult 25% at that. It was a real jerry-rig: one level of scaffolding and the ladder on top of that. Real maneuverable though.
I should get out of training early enough today to start in the early afternoon and put up the remaining plastic and get the dryer vent done. Then perhaps I can start on the data wire.
Tomorrow we’ll do siding as long as the weather allows. If it begins pouring and siding is definitely out of the question, we’ll put up the remaining insulation in the basement and work on building the master bath cubbies. Maybe even saw out the tub drain hole or something.
There’s always something:)

Broken Windows Replaced

We had a repair fellow install our new window panes this morning. It only took an hour! Very professional.
If you didn’t hear the story, I happen to be clumsy. I broke the first story one while bellying in the triple unit in installation, and I broke the basement one when hammering in the first (!) nail.
Jean swept the insulation remnants from the loft and straightened a bit. Last night we took down the black plastic strips and replaced them with somewhat transparent strips. We still have an evening or two’s worth of work there.
She also bought our paint and dryer vent and pipe, which we took over last night.
Rising Sun was out working on our drainfield more today. We have at least 5 runs (probably more by now) done.
Jean and all saw our friend the black snake. He’s about 4 feet long and likes to hang around our dome. A sure sign of no rodents now.

Paint and Insulation Update

Jean is at Home Depot today, buying paint and clear plastic sheeting.
Turns out we really can’t use black plastic sheeting, but I only spent two hours putting it up last night, so I can’t complain too much. We’ll have to take it down and replace it with clear plastic though.
We’ve spent some time picking out paint colors and Home Depot is having a $3-off-per-gallon sale on Behr paint today, so Jean is buying our colors.
