What an exciting day... LOTH has graduated to using power tools!!! Lucky me got to play with the orbitol sander... woo hoo... so much more satisfying than "cleaning"! ...and when I ran out of things to sand, I had (slightly less) fun filling holes with goop so that tomorrow I can do some more sanding!
On a more casual note, here's what the east side of the house looks like without the scaffold...
... and kitchen with the slightly adjusted island bench.
... and first showing of outside balustrade.
