Shingling in the Winter in Maine; Slow and (Semi) Steady

We started. We stop. We wait. It’s cold. It’s windy. It’s snowing. It’s icy. It’s rainig. Shinging a house in Maine in the winter is a challenge. We move forward in fits and starts, but forward we move.


The interior is plastered and we are ready to start priming for paint. The reclaimed floors are inside and drying. The reclaimed doors are stripped and in the shop getting jambs. The kitchen is underway. All faucets and sinks are ordered and on the way and tile mostly under control.


Meanwhile, I agonize over the countertop and need to start picking interior paint colors and finishes.

Let’s hope for a warm spell so the exterior can be completed.
