It's been a long wait.
If you've been following my blog for the majority of this year, you may recall that this year has been a year of large projects for us. Well, last year was too.
But anyway, this year's list of projects started with the staining of the six foot fence around our property, completed in July. You can see its beautiful cedar color in this photo and read about that adventure in this post.
At the same time, we had a work crew in to replace our ancient roof, soffits and eaves. The details of that project are recorded here.
The next crew to do some work for us was the fun team of two handsome guys, son Caleb and SIL Lance. In one hellaciously hot week they very capably painted our three
stalls filled with all sorts of junk car garage. Although our house had been repainted several years ago, the garage hadn't caught up. Now we can say it all matches. Read about that fun week here.
Following that job, and covering about the next month or so, a team came and replaced the siding on the north and west walls of our home. Why the east and south walls weren't all done at the same time is enough to easily fill another blog post. Perhaps some day. Now that the siding is new, written on our
Projects List is "PAINT NEW SIDING."

We recently learned that the originally scheduled gutter guy had been severely injured in a work accident, and just didn't cancel his jobs, thinking that he'd be back to work again soon. We waited some more.
In the end, our roofing contractor had to employ the services of another gutter contractor, who showed up yesterday and had the gutters all up in barely half the day.
We could hear the lovely music of the water happily dripping down inside those pipes, and all was good. Nothing laying around in those brand spankin' new gutters. No sir.
Finally, the top of our house is done. Check.
Now then. It's time to get back out there and start "Decking Those Halls." Where's Clark Griswold when you need him?
