Now that we’ve sold our house, we’re working on it again. Nothing major, just small projects we want to finish up. Adding fascia to the exterior.
Installing and staining window trim.
As you can see, Ben had a little help(er) for this project. I went into the house to get a paint brush for Ben, came back out, but didn’t see V. Ben asked if he went in with me. Then V popped up from the window well. Scared the crap out of me!
One of the things we promised to finish was the fence on the ends of the house. Ben didn’t finish the south end when he worked on the rest of the fence because the old posts were cemented in. Finally, he had a reason to tackle this. Simple enough, and I stained it to match.
Here’s what the north side looked like last summer. The fence is done, but we lacked a real gate.
That’s done now.
So much better. Jack approves, too.
For the past two years the French doors in my office have been without door handles. We recently replaced a few handles for locking levers in the basement, so Ben retrofitted the old handles to work for the office. He just removed the plungers and we’re good to go.
See the gaping hole below?
Here it is today, complete with closet doors.
Ben still has to cut a trim piece to hide the track, but we’re getting there.
We’ve done all this, but I have yet to pack a single box to actually move. I’m afraid it will jinx the closing (our situation is slightly different than usual). So, keep your fingers crossed everything goes smoothly and we’ll update you as soon as we can!
