Pergola and Path In Progress
Two tons of crushed limestone and 2,300 pounds of flagstone later, here is the progress on the path. Fortunately I had some help, but I think it's safe to say that I have lifted more weight this week than in any other in my entire life.
The path and red panels are the view from the kitchen window. With the emerging green of the plants, it is truly vibrant and makes washing dishes more pleasant.
The guys worked on the pergola over the patio yesterday. I went out to check on the progress just in time to hear some unhappy grumbling over a missed measurement. With 80% of the cross beams in place, they all came back down and were redone.
Cloudy, drizzly days are good for one thing: washing windows. Mine are now all sparkling clean, thanks to Invisible Glass. No streaks!
Interior painting nearly complete. I can not wait to get things back in order. Between having to empty the bookcase of hundreds of cookbooks so the carpet could be stretched, emptying the pantry so we could pull it out and paint behind it, and having the garage full of saws and equipment, it's beginning to feel like the entire house was tipped over and all of the contents spilled.
