House Work

November 30, 2009

So, you know the guest bedroom I keep on talking about? I finally got started on it this long holiday weekend.


I have the trim and windows painted with a fresh coat of white and this evening will get started on the walls.

While I was busy painting Jeremy was weather-proofing our home. We have 27 eighty-year-old windows that are drafty – so it was quite a task.

Our windows are so old that they have the rope/pulley system. Unfortunately, you can feel wind coming in through these old pulleys – so Jeremy sealed them shut with Big Stuff foam (not recommended – it got ALL over the place). We’ll be touching everything up using X-acto knives and paint.


Our home kind of became a war zone but it felt nice to give the place some love.
