Some of the work I got to do in Oregon:
|Five (5) finishes viewed from one place! The ceiling, the far wall, the niche, the round wall, and the mouldings on the top and bottom of the round wall. Whew! Thank you O'leal & Associates for another great project!|
|Faux distressed leather ceiling. Can't wait to see it with the chandelier!|
|Two (2) finishes here: Venetian plaster walls and ceiling (not shown) and aged brass rope moulding on an unfinished lighting feature.|
This was supposed to be the summer when we worked to get the yard area of the property back to a good starting point for the next few summers, but my being gone so much pushed that off a year. I'd hoped to build a new wood shed nearer the house, but ran out of time. Our temporary firewood storage is pretty much the same set up as before, but with newer pallets and, most importantly, much closer to the house and on the same side of the house as the wood stove. It's near where we hope to build the shed next summer.
|Full disclosure: The dog butt (upper left) is ours.|
Regardless of the dumpster project, I must stain the fence. It's a lonnnnnng fence, but at least it's just posts with a top rail... and I'm alllllllmost done.
|If and when we get more fencing installed, I'll make sure I have a couple of weeks after the posts are set and the rails installed to stain it before the field fence goes on.|
|The posts are approximately 8' apart, with a 16' rail on top. I figured a 16' section took 20-25 minutes to complete.|
|Mostly the fence is in the open, but there are a few places where it runs through vegetation. like these lilacs. I don't know how much extra time these sections took and I guess that I don't want too. Oof.|
|The section to the left of the walk-through gate is the last part: about thirteen 16' sections.|
I hope to put together a post or two of the activities that filled in the cracks of summer... stay tuned.
