In the meantime, Jim Friestad's bookcase crew has been working apace. Most of the saw cutting is done, and with good weather, activity moved outdoors. Lots of sanding, staining, and finishing coats of varathane. Next time you see Jim, ask him how many hours have been put into this activity so far. Better yet, come down and enjoy the fun!
Lastly, the plumber has begun to lurk around the new and old sections, and has determined that to cap off various pipes still remaining in the new wing, he has to begin preliminary work in the old wing. His first step is to shut off the water in the kitchen, and that condition will remain until the entire construction project is completed in August. We shall see more and more intrusion in the old wing until we have to give it up completely to commence its renovation early next month.
|Emily and others are able to work indoors on the weekends. Good thing when it's raining!|
