Oh, the pounding, oh the sawing and hammering!
Sadie is hiding out in the basement with me as that is the quietest place to be!
It’s amazing how fast the transformation is taking place. The old siding is being completely covered with new insulation and the new siding is going right over it..new moldings added everywhere, even under the eaves.
The front porch area will be a bit different…adding siding that looks like shake shingles in the front porch for a bit of a different texture.
Shutters and porch railing will match the rust colored front door that we added at Christmas time.
A total house face lift! It will pay for itself over time with the energy we save, and the value added to the house and the fact that we won't need to paint, stain or seal anymore. It's all good. In the long run.
Down in the basement I am getting ready to deplete this unloved unwanted ((but fondly remembered)) stack of old pinks and dusty mauve’s into a queen sized quilt back!
I just couldn’t make myself buy 9 yards of one thing for the back of a scrap quilt. I just couldn’t do it. The gauntlet has been thrown down ----
I think I’ll dig into the orphan bin too and see what blocks are in there that contain pink in them and see if I can empty out from two areas in the stash that really need to GO.
What is the most unloved color in YOUR stash? Can you find a way to use it?
I dare you!
