They say that we might actually have a dusting of snow at the end of this week, but our fall has been absolutely wonderful. Summer was filled with lots of projects here in Georgetown so there were stretches of time that we simply had to put the Phippsburg house project on hold. I have had the opportunity to spend some serious time there over the last week or so, and the push is on to get things closed in before the temperatures take a dive for good.
As this picture indicates, yesterday was an absolutely beautiful day! The sky was blue and the temperature was just right for working outside. I took this picture at lunch time. By the end of the day all four of the front windows were in place.
Today was not quite as bright, but it was still a good day for working… at least till the rain came in the afternoon. But, by then I had all of the paper up on this near gable end, and the fifth window in place. Half of the windows are in now. My goal is to finish the windows and the doors within 2 weeks. This morning the fellow who has been doing the site work stopped by, and we made plans to finish up that portion of the job by the time Thanksgiving rolls around.
A pressing need now is to take a few loads of trash to the dump – if all goes well, I might get that accomplished tomorrow. I should really spend more time at the end of each day, sweeping and organizing the refuse, but I am finding that there is little energy left for such things these days!
On a side note, I stopped in Bath today to pick up some glass panels that we had ordered for a job in Georgetown. The woman at the desk took me into the shop and opened the door there to make it easier to load. When she saw my van, she asked if I was building a house on Lewis Way. It turns out that she is our next door neighbor there – the world is rather small.. especially so in the mid-coast area of Maine!
