Matt the mason worked his magic today. The brick is patched up, and I’m hoping that means we won’t need to call him back for a while.

Our contractor initially thought not to remove the extraneous electrical box and the random plywood behind our meter, but now that everything else is getting replaced, he changed his mind. Extra bucks, brace yourselves.

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.
