I have created this gallery so folks can keep updated on the work that I am doing to my most recent life change. I suspect I will keep it updated as time and projects permit/require. It will be a learning process, had only I paid more attention to Vicky all those years ago… Click on an image to get a bigger version. Hope you enjoy.

The back room is now mostly wired and insulated
And of course there is another door project.
So I started cleaning It up, but had to shelve it for other priorities.
A framed screen to go into a door I did last fall.
I decided a bathroom vent fan would be nice, so I cut a hole in the ceiling.
Needed to wire the fan, and clean up the mess…
There was (and still is) a snake pit of wires in the attic.
I decided that the ceiling needed to come down. The insulation followed.
Guess I needed to clean it up.
…then hung a temporary ceiling. Thanks Scott!
Then one night, about 2100, I got a crazy idea…
And let there be light…
Baked some bread somewhere in there too.
Took the wall lights out of the bathroom…
and gave them a paint job…
then put them up in the bedroom.
Wired new lights in the bathroom.
I tried planting sage out front.
Got an awning up over the west door.
