More house work

We’ve had a good couple of weeks on our house. We’ve had a lot of little left over things to finish off and have finally got around to completing the jobs.

Here’s the completed gable end.

So that means we can put the rest of the tin on our roof.north eaves 031

Milly wouldn’t let me put the tin on until she gave the porch roof a good cleaning. It’s a good thing I did. She probably would have been driven crazy knowing there was saw dust above her head while she sat on the porch.


Ringo helped screwing the tin on. Is it completely unwise to let a 7 year old up on the roof to help?north eaves 033

Looks good right? Still need to complete the porch as that looks like an eye sore.north eaves 036

North side of the house was still unfinished as well.north eaves 046

But we have been working on it like crazy. Should be done tomorrow.north eaves 051

Still have the vents to put in the porch and the remaining pine on the North porch roof. north eaves 053

Still have the West porch to go.

I thought we had this place pigeon proof but just as we were leaving this little guy flew up and landed on his roost. We filled in the top pieces so am guessing we ruined his nightly safe haven.

Still a lot to go but it’s coming together nicely. I’ve been saying this for about a year but we are hoping a few more months and we will be in this place.

  1. Man! It is coming right along, thank you for sharing all of this with us!

  2. It's coming along beautifully! And I'm with Milly on sweeping up those sorts of places before the final layer goes on. I insisted on the same thing when we put down our kitchen floor!
