Texas Room, Day 12!

Today it was NOT raining in south Texas! Whoo hoo! John arrived just before 8 a.m. and got started on the siding. There is a lot of preparatory work involved with siding. You have to put the facings on the doors and the J-channel, etc. I don't know if those are the proper names, but suffice to say that you have to have something to attach the siding to, so that stuff has to go up first. If you were expecting to see the room get "wrapped" today (like Mom) you were disappointed. While it looks like not much was accomplished, there was a lot of stuff that went up that had to be cut and perfectly fitted so that the siding would look nice when it is done.

By afternoon, they started to put the siding on. They are starting near the little shed first so that they get it straight and in line with that. Once they get around to the side and back where there are few cutouts, it will go rather quickly. John figures three days to do the siding, but Terry thinks that it will take longer. If the weather holds, it could be done by the weekend! Whoot!

It was warmer today. . . in the 80's, but it is supposed to cool down again tomorrow and the high is supposed to be 70*. Quite a change, but that won't be bad for working outside. And if the sun comes out, it will be nice.

Tomorrow we are having another patio sale here in the park, so Mom and I are going to set out a few things. I still have some jewelry left over from last time and Mom has a couple bicycles to sell.

Till next time. . .

Wow, looks like you have been busy. It really looks nice. Hope to make it over before you leave and see you and your new room.
