More and more progress is happening here at the Hermits’ Rest. My favorite thing is the power washing extravaganza that went on today. The part of our garage that faces north has been mildewing, as north-facing surfaces tend to do.
I was really happy to see the guys cleaning it, because Kathleen and I have been joking that the mildew ruins our view from the pool. And hey, power washing is a good job in this weather!
That’s not the only power washing that went on. After some trouble with not enough voltage to run the electric washer and having to coax the gas one to life, all the shipping containers also got power washed.
Our old one was primed years ago by me and Lee, but it never got painted. The other one is also primer color. They are going to get painted!
It’s been decided to paint them barn red with white trim to match the two portable buildings. I sorta wanted all the buildings the color scheme of the garage, but this will look nice, too, and farm-like.
The idea is that the pool house will match the house and garage, so it will be obvious which buildings house people and which house animals or their supplies.
Meanwhile, I got a little more furniture in the Suna Shack part of the tack room. Kathleen got my pink chair from my former office and I put a couple of decorations there and in the chicken area.
And ooh. The cabinets, microwave, and sink are ready for installation in the brother-in-law suite. Progress!
Glad I was inside writing all day, though. I could get tired!
