Needed to max out the Genie lift at 35′ to reach the top of the high-side of the house. Not exactly a stable platform at that height (and in the Conmee wind).
I took a break from other projects to build a pin board for the dining room for the kids’ art and school projects. Paint colour for this and all trim in the house is West Highland White by Sherwin Williams.
The interior doors arrived. Then they left because they were the wrong ones. But then they arrived again and were all we had ever hoped and dreamed of (because your dreams are overrun by mundane thoughts, decisions and checklists when you’re trying to build a house).
They say if your marriage can survive a reno it’s in good shape. If it can survive building a house yourselves from scratch…I don’t know what they say, but it’s super hard. Thankful for a patient partner; my better half and the only teammate that could’ve made it all happen.
Mudroom lockers and built-ins are constructed. Oak bench with Agreeable Gray painted trim and woodwork.
Dana and Amy made a Menard’s run (3 hrs each way) to pick up the exterior trim for the house. Long story short: the load shifted, they lost some stuff, and had to re-stack everything. The trip took about 14 hrs.
Dana and Grandma Old painted the door jambs and some of the initial trim. Paint colour: Sherwin Williams West Highland White
