The family came up over the weekend and helped clear out the scrap piles that keep popping up around the house. We loaded the items into the tractor and piled them near the dumpster

We all took a little time to stop and smell the flowers.
The lilac bushes are in full bloom around the house.

Jess has been working hard un-wallpapering the stair well.  I had to build her a little scaffolding to walk out over the stairs and get to the ceiling.  I think she enjoyed walking out on "The Platform of Death". There is something about having a little metal pin being the only thing seperating you from a 11 foot fall that gets her heart racing.

We put a temporary light fixture in to illuminate the area. The only spare fixture we had laying around was an outdoor flood lamp.

We still have a lot of plaster patching work in our future. Some of the more severe walls are simply going to get a layer of 1/4" drywall put over them.

Drywall on the main floor is progressing.

The underside of the porch roof was started.

We finished the remote panel wiring this week. Now it's time to start on the finish electrical.

Did a bit of last minute surprise electrical work. Wired in a closet light and switch we had forgotten about previously. Aiden 'helped' by randomly running off with tools and small "baby screws", as he calls them.

Thanks for reading!
