Day 6

You probably can't see them, but there are swarms of butterflies around these coreopsis in my front yard. Walking down the sidewalk stirs them up and they land on me. How fun!
We also got some work in yesterday. While I mowed the yard, Hubby got the band on the end of the rafters and soffit supports, then I helped him put up the barge rafters, finished decking, built out the gable end for siding, and then put on board and then wrapped it. Tyvek isn't normally put on gable ends but we wanted to make the room as airtight and bugproof as possible before the kitchen wall comes out.

Marti- you have been busy! PLEASE stay off the ladder! When I read your post about the ladder it scared me for you! The addition is looking really nice.

Marti said...

Thanks! I wish I could stay off the ladder, but dh can't do it alone. I haven't gotten back on an extension ladder yet though. I'm ok on the step ladder so far.

I had those flying around my yard on the weekend... they were having more fun than I

Loving your new addition but not loving the ladder episode. Scary stuff those ladders. Thank goodness you are all right.

Enjoy your day Marti and please be careful.


PS... love your kitty stories. Funny how territorial cats are... we can't get our two to see eye to eye either... without the female wanting to scratch the eyes out of the male one.

Wow, lots of progress. I can understand why you'd want to be as leak proof as possible before you take out the wall.

Love the butterfly. Looks like you made a friend.

You two do beautiful work together--and save each other's lives during your work.
