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.

While the husband prepared for insulation and electrical, I painted a dresser we found on the side of the road.

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.
