We’ve worked on this a bit more but decided to table it and finish in the spring. This turned out to be so much bigger a job than I ever anticipated. And the main work is done. I’d really wanted to finish the trim before winter hit but just ran out of time and warmth…soooo in the spring, we will finish the trim, paint the front door, paint the porch floor, paint the contrasting edge at the top of each window, and paint the foundation blocks.
Despite the fact that it isn’t completely done, the house looks SO much better now than before I started.
