I haven’t posted much lately. This is because I’ve been keeping myself busy with house maintenance stuff. It’s too hot to go outside, so the garage is not any different than it was before the electrical panel was installed. This causes some distress, but it’s even hotter in the garage than it is outside… So, it can wait. Besides, I need to make a 4-inch change to the walls I built around the chimney. Apparently, there is supposed to be a 4-inch air gap between the chimney and the wall, or so says the building inspector.

The screened patio is being stymied by the fact that no one in Grand Rapids can get me the vinyl siding J-channel I need to match the house. Four years ago I picked up some siding for repair from Fox Brothers… but they’ve gone out of business or sold themselves or something. Whatever the case, I know what I need — Driftwood is the style and Canyon Clay is the color — but I can’t get my hands on it.

Which leaves the inside projects. I’ve been working on the basement while Lady Ronn tackles the front room upstairs.

well, now.

Nothing is quite 100% done. But progress is being made.
