Since last spring I have been working steadily on completion of the exterior of the building project started in 2006. The front addition room began in 2004 following the passing of my father with my mother offering to fund the project. She is doing fine I am glad to report.
My current worker has been a pleasure to work with and we worked at night this past fall using a halogen work light and flashlights when he was available in the evening. My health was not good toward the last several months with my knee replacements as well as right hand going numb. We worked through some intense heat in the summer when my worker was then available during the daytime as we installed fiber siding from the barn roof on the north area of the second story.
It is 60 degree F here in S. Illinois today on the last day of the year. Salty is outside in his pen and I will be walking him as I do everyday.
I could not be more pleased with the accomplishment we have achieved in getting the building exterior to the way it is.
Have a very good 2011 everyone.
