We've shifted our attention away from the outside appearance, which has now been pretty well been established and are concentrating on what type of finishing touch Vicki wants to add in there. She is developing a plan in her head as to the appearance of the walls and ceiling and has established that the old antique style wainscoting applied half way up the outer walls finished with another type material above with a shelf divider would look quaint. I trust that Vick, coupled with the designer abilities of her Mom and Dad, will come up with an excellent combination that will add charisma to the inside that will parallel the outside, country charm and beauty. Once the roofing is completed and the door and windows are in place, we can concentrate on other things for awhile until we are completely ready for winter.
We need to close up the pool......I know, I know...we're a little late this fall. Then there is the wood strips on the old barn that will insure the vinyl will stay in place and not tear off. We need hay for the loft to insure we can get through the winter with the Alpacas and bunnies having enough to eat when the snow is on the ground. And finally, I'd like to build a small 8x8 turkey house on the end of the bunny brothel yet. A turkey house is only a day's work for the DeWalt saw and Bostitch framing nailer we have...especially when building against an existing structure.
Stay tuned for the day's end roundup of progression pictures. I'll post them this evening when we're done.
