Farmhouse Construction Update: Roof and Windows
Did I mention how nice it is to go in the house now and not have water dripping from the ceiling when it rains?!
I never thought that I'd actually utter those words but it is.
Apparently, my appreciation for a nice dry space indoors is shared by the sparrows that have taken up residence in the ceiling of the master bedroom. No kidding. They fly around the bedroom and bathroom. I"m guessing that they're living in the attic. I just hope that they don't decide to nest there because that will mean relocating them when the insulation goes in.
Some how having birds living inside the house during framing seems apropos...we had robins living in the ceiling of the garage when we built the house at 127 and I left a section of drywall and the insulation out of that portion of the house until after the babies had left the nest.
Yep, I'm a nature lover. Go figure.
Birds I can deal with. Skunks and other large, nocturnal crawly creatures? Notsomuch.
The new fireplace chimney is formed, prepped, and waiting for stone this week. The dovecote is waiting for its copper roof and siding but I love the shape.
There is also work being done on the inside. The final framing will be completed, the plumbing will be tested and the electrician will install the new service and begin installing the new wiring. Finally, if it ever stops raining (and snowing), we'll grade the yard and begin landscaping. I'll share updates as there are things worth sharing.
Have a great week and thanks for reading!
