The north side

  As reported in an earlier post, the north wall of the addition had to be nearly rebuilt because of the damage over time from insects, rot and neglect.
eyewww--rot!

framing in the hole left from old windows

where we left off yesterday-inside view

where we left off yesterday--outside view

sheathing completed

A WINDOW!!!
   Today we got the window installed after putting up the plywood sheathing. The door stills needs to be trimmed out and of course now the interior is in destruction mode because of the window replacement. AND the siding needs to go up. Yikes! What a process. But things are moving in a forward direction.

Amazing!! I nominate you for your own show on DIY network. Of course you'll have to come up with family drama, recipes for chicken and white wine dinners and refocus through fiber art. I don't think there'll be another show just like it!

Oh Etta, what a great idea! I have everything you suggest, too. Yesterday evening Butch asked me to go with him to help that floozy put up Xmas lights. So I went and sat on my butt and watched them--took photos too--they were so cute. Then today, while I'm working on this old house, he asks me if I want to go back to W Mps!!???!!! Oh yeah baby, I got me some family drama! And I like to cook chicken and I LOVE white wine. Count me in--where's a producer?
