North Side-Continued

Well...we've had some delays. The weather didn't cooperate this weekend for us. Reinforcing the scaffolding also took a lot more work than planned. But you really don't want to be that high up with a support hanging by one nail.
This morning I had to run to town to get another gallon of stain. This afternoon I used the sunny weather to pre-stain a bunch of long boards. When we work on the peaks it is nice to not have to return to that height to stain everything.
Last night, Clancy called me out to see the view of the house shown in the second photo. I cried. It was the first time in all these years that I have seen this angle of the house with siding and without scaffolding. I think it looks beautiful-even with the construction mess.

Your house looks really good Sabrina. You guys are really doing a nice job! I'd be so scared working up there on the peak, wind or no wind! I'm glad you guys aren't taking chances. Keep being so careful...Are you almost done now?

I wish we were done. We have two gable peaks above the window line to finish, the whole east side(which should go pretty fast because it does not have a high peak, then we have one little chunk of wall under the big porch roof.

The gable peeks are truly the most challenging part of the whole project. Once those two are finished I expect the rest will seem like a piece of cake. :)
