Infrastructure Projects

So begins the work the winter work. Here are the projects completed in the past week.

  • Install wall speakers in Great Room (finally)
  • Weatherstrip the clerstory porch
  • Install R30 insulation in attic where straw bales were not used
  • Paint trusses black in attic windows
  • Shelving in kitchen
  • Wine Tasting on Peachy Canyon Road
  • Mop the floor
  • Fill in the den of the skunk who moved in when the coyote moved out
Regarding mopping the floor. That has got to be one of the most unforgiving jobs around the house. Or maybe I am just old.
