this week he’s been busy building all of the soffits for the house, although we won’t be spending lots of time on the exterior of the house (and yard) this year, a few projects are musts while the weather is good. painting the soffits (which he built using 4×8 sheets found here), the front porch roof has a bit more finish work, the gingerbread on the front is getting painted, and if all goes well today (you just never know..), he’s cutting and attaching the gingerbread to the back peak (above pics).
in other news.. our shiny new fridge was having an issue or two as well and sears is bringing us a replacement today, we just might have our first ice cubes by the weekend.. we feel like we’re in a seinfeld episode, no
soup ice for you! and the vintage fridge went on it’s merry way yesterday to someone wanting just a freezer, so long live the golden egg.
and, it’s been nice and hot here which i love, but…. our ac/heating unit that we had installed has not been cooperating and we have not had the best of luck on finding reliable service for it. three hot nights of no sleep and it became numero uno on the list of must-be-done-yesterday. it’s not uber wallet friendly getting the problems fixed but we finally found a company that is fully versed in split systems (we have a fujitsu) and they’re coming back today to bring us cool cool air ( i hope), so fingers crossed for us people!! thank goodness it’s not 118 degrees here like lake havasu was yesterday, how do they do it?!
