|My secondary objective has been to preserve the plants and bushes along the way. So far, so good.|
|I would love to get rid of the ugly utility meters. Alas. The Orange tree helps.|
|I love how these corners turned out - they are a compromise that Bec and I came to. They are certainly worth the immense effort that went into them.|
Not much will get done next week with a backpacking trip at the end of the week. I'm relying on the preparation of years past to make this trip possible. Ella comes along this year, so all of the preparation that has taken place over the past weeks has been aimed her direction.
So in brief I've met my objectives for 2 months running.
Preparation for siding in June - Done.
Started installing siding on July 4th.
Siding completed by end of July - Done-ish. (I've got a few days to make that reality)
Strip roof, repair roof plywood, repair rafters, create gable soffits, and in a word - prepare for shingles.
Gutters, shingles, soffits, paint.
Details, details, details, and whatever didn't get done in September.
