Spring has Sprung

April 26

After the longest winter in recent memory we are finally back in the 70’s. Yesterday we cemented in the first stone arch over the front doors. The stones were all hand dressed during the winter so they would be ready when the weather was. We have also begun to install the soffits in preparation for installing the fascia, corbels, and then the cut shingle work that will cover the second floor exterior walls.

The greatest change in the interior was the removal of the plastic covering the first floor windows which we had installed to conserve heat during the winter. The rooms were suddenly flooded with light and the views out of several of the windows were quite spectacular. From here on in all fair weather work will be focused on the exterior leaving any interior efforts for the occasional rainy day. Jim

Hallelujah, hallelujah, it is spring, it is spring. It is now a challenge of getting used to the warm temperature; something that will be very manageable. Sam
