Just finished my first week of work since Sam left to go back to Hudson. Strange not having him here… I’ll miss him. He’s back to his world while mine gets flooded with sub contractors!

Jason and Dan finished up the HVAC “rough-in” (heating and cooling). I have to give them credit for doing a beautiful installation.
Jimmy and Anthony
The Plumber, Anthony, put in a full week. I wasn’t really ready for him but was sooooo glad he came. I made an important decision regarding the layout of the bathrooms and the kitchen to keep him rolling. Having the the heating/cooling come together with the plumbers there was perfect; we were able to talk through challenging issues and tweak areas to get everything to work out.
Eric and Mike
Mike Costello, the roofer, started the porch roof on Sunday. It went well. They worked all the way until 8:30. They’ll finish up this weekend. We made a decision to remove the old box gutter; they can often be very problematic! By using an over-sized standard gutter with some additional trim, we’ll get something that looks good but won’t be as vulnerable to decay.
Myself? Can’t let go of the wood stripping process! I just love doing it. It’s straight forward, visually rewarding and finishes a big project that would suck when the weather gets hotter.
Some rooms, like this one, had brown paint over the original shellac.
In the process… I strip the door face in thirds.
