Not much noticeably changed on the house on Friday, so I decided not to post an update. In addition, Friday was the day I finally (nearly) cracked from all of this construction, so I thought a short hiatus might be a good idea. The roofer kept climbing down and asking me questions I had no way of being able to answer… Saturday, the roofer came and finished up both the “contract” work and a few extra repairs Todd authorized him to do. The other crew were doing a lot of little finish work on the upstairs porch and it didn’t look all that exciting. 🙂 Today, however, they made progress even I can see. They boxed in (with Hardie plank) a lot of the edges of the porch. They did a LOT of caulking to seal things up. They also started painting, which is very exciting.

Painted back of house:
More windows! The installer should be here tomorrow morning (and last Wednesday, last Friday, and this morning). I blame the General Contractor’s scheduling, not the windows guy. I will just be glad when they get them installed.

In Isaac news, Todd and I took him to the park on Sunday afternoon. We ran into 2 families (who also didn’t come together) from National Instruments, a friend of mine from church, and a woman I used to go to music class with over the summer. Rather impressive given the size of this fairly small park…

I want to go in the attic to help Daddy rewire the ceiling fans!!!
