Today, we spent part of the day scraping the existing clapboard siding and trying to get it ready to be primed and then painted. We still need to finish filling in any existing holes in the siding. But comparing that to all the other jobs that we needed to do, this seems like a small task.
Yesterday, Art went and purchased the wood from Friend's Lumber
in Schenectady, so he could start making the storm window. Since the weather has been so nice though, we're putting the window making on the back burner to do for a rainy day.
Next week, September 30-October 5, 2013, will have the following goals:
We're also trying to get rid of the precast cement stairs that the porch was sitting on. However, we haven't had a whole lot of success on Craigslist with that.
- Finishing filling any holes in the siding
- Paint the side of the house
