For starters, there's a whole LOT of painting going on. Some of it is sprayed on the ceilings and walls.
And some of it is done the old-fashioned way, with brushes and rollers and skilled hands and eyes.
There are what seem like miles of woodwork to be cleaned and polished with steel wool, paste wax, and a lot of elbow grease . That's my job. Say a little prayer that my neck, shoulder, elbow and hand hold up til I'm done, please! And when I'm finished with the woodwork, there's the furniture to do the same way...
Floors are being sanded...
and are finishing up beautifully.
There's even wallpaper!
The Guest House is a pretty busy place these days. There are two, three, four, and sometimes five men working, and we're still having guests. They are brave souls who are willing to tolerate an "under construction getaway." It's all very exciting, and it's mighty sweet that we're now able to see the beginning of the end.
