Some updates from the last couple of weeks. You’ll find a discussion about the water softener, some terrifying footage of tradesman going up and down ladders leading up to our roof (while sometimes carrying another ladder), and you’ll learn about something called distemper paint, and how to remove it.
Come see what we’ve been up to.
Grant repaired plaster and painted in the parents bathroom. And I talked about the new water softener (we’ve never had one before!):
Here’s more on the water softener:
And here’s one more report on the water softener, plus some painting in the attic:
Oh my. This footage (and photographs) is terrifying to watch, but also I can’t look away. This roof repair team came to repair the zinc around the 3 chimneys, and to open vent holes for the plumbing. This work seems so brave to me:
For the last update today, here’s where I learned what distemper paint is, what the benefits are, and how to remove it. Have you ever heard of distemper paint?:
We’re getting closer. We still need one big push on plumbing work — I think if the team came and gave us 3 full days they would be done. And then, there’s plaster and painting in the stairwell, the electrical team needs to come drop in the outlets and switches, and there are a few other odds and ends (a little bit of tile, a little bit of carpentry, etc.).
