Greg and I spent the weekend locked in the painting studio where we got about 1000 board feet of moldings painted. As Greg needs to move into another project for his real business, I will be painting the rest over the beginning of this week. The building is coming along and we have a meeting with the power company today about what it might cost to move our power underground and get this pole out of the way. They are also coming to shut down the power so our amazing electrician can pull the box off the building and move it so the boys can install one final window and finish wrapping up the building for winter...oh wait, I mean spring...
You can see where the last window goes in the photo below.
I am happy to report that the porch really doesn't impinge on the afternoon light. This photo was taken out the front windows around 5:30 pm last Friday.
And what a deck the apartment has! I didn't really think it would be that useable, but here I sit, in a comfy chair, around 5:30, looking towards the bridge.
You really can just sit, put your feet up, and watch the town of Belfast go by.
I need more to go on, but I think the apartment is haunted. A previous tenant told us that she used to hear someone walking around the apartment in the middle of the night, I walked into the first floor of the apartment one afternoon and heard scurrying of feet above. When I went to check it out, I didn't see anything. Then on Friday, I toured a friend through the apartment, went back outside with them and then decided to make a video of the construction in the apartment. When I got to the second floor, the radio was on...when it hadn't been turned on when I did the tour. I still need some convincing, but for now, I think we have a friendly ghost, whom I will name Casper.
