As usual, summer is our time to tackle outdoor projects. During the week, I add and keep up plants, build walkways, and pull weeds. Weekends are Ben’s time to knock out the heavy lifting projects, like installing new windows, siding, and rebuilding the front deck while I help in any possible way. So far, we’ve constructed a cover for the south-facing front deck, to make it usable and enjoyable in blazing heat and sunshine. Before we can go any further with that, we have to replace the sliding doors. The old sets are original to the house and barely function. Sliding each door takes far more effort than it should, the screens are gone, and the panes are fogged up.
When renovating, every step feels like a huge victory, so having easy to open, see through doors is a thrilling luxury.
Two down, one to go.
Followed up by the rest of the pool house windows, that are waiting in the only looking/getting worse pool house.
But, after windows, we can work on siding, then the interior. And you know what that means? The giant warehouse room filled with building supplies and tools can start looking better, perhaps even become usable. What an original idea, no?

Are you keeping the pool?
That’s the plan! It hasn’t functioned in the past five or more years, so we’ll see what issues we’re dealing with once we get to that stage.
I know I’ve said this before, but I wish I had 1% of your talent. Sigh…
It’s always a learning process, trying something you’ve never done before. That’s how both Ben and I have figured out how to do any home repairs/DIY.
I lost your blog when Google reader died. I was just thinking about your pool room and looked you up! So happy to follow again – looks like you’ve been up to some fun things in the house 🙂
