The Cross House
Recently, we took down the forest of scaffolding surrounding the round tower. Whoee!
This week we put up scaffolding so I could paint the dormer window, and one side of the octagon tower. Whoee!
So, bit by bit, the original colors are returning to the Cross House.
NOTE: I am much happier standing on a stationary platform than precariously standing on a ladder and will more often than not go for the former rather than latter. For example, you see the gable end of the dormer? How can one paint such an inaccessible location? But now, I have a full-width rigid platform. Nice. The whole dormer scaffolding only took about three hours to construct; an investment of time well worth it.
NOTE: See the three arched windows on the second floor? The one over the right (south) obviously drooped just a few weeks ago. After jacking up a section of the second floor, and installing a steel beam, the droop is gone. This makes me very happy. I suspect the window feels the same.
