Between near-constant rainfall all weekend, somehow we managed to finish painting the fascia boards. We’re ready for the roofers (only barely).
Also, I think we’re going to be happy with the siding color, Pewter Tankard from Sherwin-Williams. It really does feel like a warm pewter. I don’t know if it feels like a tankard, though, considering I have no idea what that is. I imagine an army tank in pewter. Hm.

I know that Tobi Fairley can be over-the-top, but her interiors always evoke something in me, and I imagine that’s why she’s so successful. You can’t tiptoe past one of her rooms; you stop dead in your tracks.
And because I am obsessed with the idea of a teal velvet sofa, I stared at this photo for a lot longer than is probably healthy. Just look at this room! How luxurious yet convivial! What a clever color palette!
Yes, that’s exactly how I speak when addressing her work.

Today we’re closing up the eaves with soffits, as you can see. We’re also removing the chimney and patching the brickwork.
Closing up the soffits was one of the things I did not want to do, because I wanted the rafters exposed, but the only way around that was to spend more money that we don’t have. Oh well, it certainly doesn’t look bad. It looks quite clean.
