On a tear

I'm not quite ready to come back from break yet, but I'll chime in with this photo so you can understand what's been eating my time. Stage left, you can see the man lift I ride in, all the way up to the peak of the roof, to work. It's kind of fun, and kind of terrifying. This week, I started pulling off aluminum on the peaked part of the front, and discovered--oh-- there's no wood siding underneath up near the top. Patrick and I, characteristically, are seizing this opportunity. We're going to replace the missing pieces with scalloped siding, which will be just that more nice and fancy and historic. For all we know, that's what was there originally.

For reference, here's where I was a month ago:

So I'll see you next Monday, provided I'm ready to come back from break then. It feels good to be making progress on this now, for sure.
