Our plans were for you to be reading a post from somewhere between Mississippi and Kansas this weekend. We’ve had reservations for months at a COE campground near Junction City, KS. Looking forward to meeting up with many old and new friends of the Casita community at the Kansas Gathering. A week of fun and fellowship, intermingled with lots of food and drink. It just wasn’t meant to be.
We did manage a day trip to Natchez last Sunday for the grand daughters birthday. Had a great Sunday brunch at one of the old antebellum homes.
On Tuesday my brother and I started back on our little house. This is how it looked that morning.
We finished our fascia’s and soffit, and by lunch Wednesday, it looked like this.
We installed the windows and the exterior trim on them, as well as the corners.
Installed the rear door, along with placing siding on most of the rear so we could mount the electric meter box.
We also started on the interior wiring.
And stripped the ceiling to support the insulation which will go in the attic, and make hanging the sheetrock much easier.
We had a third set of hands from Wednesday on. A cousin that works offshore, 14 days on and 14 off, helps us when he is in. I sure was glad to see him drive up.
Hoping everyone has a wonderful Labor Day weekend. I always look forward to Labor Day as it means that Fall can’t be far off. That’s my favorite time of year…….jc
