The First Piece of Drywall

Rain came in with heavy winds and chased the painters away. So sad.

I am amused to note that even the painters cannot resist being among the many to give us their card and offer to do other work on the house. This house just seems to attract that sort of response.

The Hanson Windows guys came today and re-measured for the two windows to be replaced. Since the windows are basically falling out of the frames, this is timely, to say the least. In a week we have new windows.

Tonight we put up our first piece of drywall, on the ceiling in the back parlour. It was incredibly easy with the drywall [hoist/jack/lift]. Definitely worth renting. We think things will go very fast now.
