And remember how this blog is called HomeBuilding Countdown? We are about to make some more progress finally. My latest 'hunt' has been for window trim. I have been driving around and looking and looking and taking pictures. Stevie even took pictures in San Francisco for me.
While waiting for her in Bruceton a week ago, I found these and they are almost exactly what I want and after asking the lady on the porch very nicely, I was able to get up close to take the pictures.
Hopefully, mine will feel old and weathered like this, only mine will have scallops to match the scallopy trim that will be in the gable ends of the house. The first guy I asked about the scallops wanted to know what seafood had to do with finishing the house....he was kidding, right? He works at Lowes.
We are getting a quote for the rest of the supplies to finish the outside tall parts and we have a contractor lined up to start on Monday. Hiring a contractor seemed to be a necessary evil for now. We just don't have a way to get up over the roof to put the 2nd floor siding on. Grrrr.
Might be a little bit excited again, but need to get the siding and the trim all painted between now and then....back on task!
Who wants to paint?
