Renovating in the winter, in New Hampshire, is proving to be a fascinating experience. And a loud one. There are days that I’m happy to leave and go to work!
We’ve finally gotten a couple of snows and some really cold temperatures. That’s a good thing as the Ice Fishing Derby is next month and so far, there’s not enough ice. There are a couple of bobhouses on the lake anyway – I think they’re nuts.
The work guys are here each day, hammering and sawing and making noise. They’re all bundled up in those insulated work clothes. They’ve told us they’re enjoying being at our house because of all the sunlight, when the sun is out.
The plow guy can only plow part of the driveway due to all the stuff at the top of the driveway. He’s done a great job of working around it.
Ryan, our electric guy, installing the box for the whole house generator. He had to shut off the power for an hour this afternoon. Resetting clocks, the microwave, the oven, the answering machine is annoying. The generator will do a “self test” (shuts off regular electric and runs for a few minutes) on a regular schedule and so, we’ll get better at the “resetting.” My computer is on a battery back-up so hopefully, that won’t be an issue.
The guys removing some of the siding for the screen porch floor.
