“Some old-fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat. In our mad rush for progress and modern improvements let's be sure we take along with us all the old-fashioned things worth while.” Laura Ingalls Wilder

Yesterday the siding was completed. The only outside surface not covered is soon to be sporting a nice rock skirt below the garage windows. The plastering is completed inside and the "old world" plaster finish on the main floor looks fantastic. Even the "orange peel" finish in the other rooms is actually nice ... not too heavy of an application. Today the painter begins his magic of transforming the colorless walls into warm and inviting rooms.

Speaking of "old world plaster" ... my 17 year old daughter, Ann, asked why I'd pay extra to have the wall texture "uneven" ... "It looks like grandma's walls (she has real plaster walls) ... (she preferred the orange peel look ... :) I like the plaster myself.
