Here’s the view of the enlarged kitchen window from the inside. With all the activity outside today, inside was quite busy too, as our contractor (and his daughter) replaced sheathing and prepared for the next phase of the project.

There was so much activity at our house today. We finished painting the carport, while Matt the mason cut the brick for our larger kitchen window. Progress, it feels good.

Even when time is extremely limited, we try to make it out to the house to paint. Carport wall almost done.

Priming done. Hmm, is Pewter Tankard too dark for inside the carport? It’s perfectly mid-toned for the exterior. Feeling concerned.

This must be exactly what it felt like to paint the Sistine Chapel.

Here’s what the front of the house looks like at the moment. The carport exterior looks massive and uninteresting, so we’re looking forward to supercharging it with foliage and a wall sconce.

We didn’t have much time to spend on the house today, but we did continue priming the carport interior.
