He's Back.........

The contractor surprised us while we were gone and tried to fix the finish on the arches. It didn't work..........I mean he surprised us by showing some initiative, but the actual work on the arches was bleak. They were obviously patched and looked 2 toned in color-in a word: awful!

Today gave way to a new game plan after a visit to the stucco store! Their recommendation was to cover the whole surface of the arches again and refinish. So $200+ later we are doing just that!


  1. It will all be worth it in the end. Glad you'll be getting the arches you want. They really do look great with the house!


  2. Oh brother! What a disappointment. The 'veranda' looks beautiful!

  3. We shall conquer...eventually!


Thanks for taking the time to let me know you stopped by to read my blog!

A Finished Vest!

 The vest is finished-buttons and all!  The buttons are wooden, dyed olive green with variations in color which makes them just right! ...
