The Cross House
The newly milled water table (trim that goes at the bottom) is also ready, and I will be picking it up this week in Kansas City. Justin is scheduled to begin installing the trim (cedar!) the following Monday, weather permitting.
Come April I hope to be able to paint all the new siding. At some point soon I also greatly look forward to removing the fence. I also have to figure out how to finish off the basement entry (now covered in plywood). Oh, and new steps have to be made, and the little bit of original porch railing recreated. Crossing my fingers that all this will be done this year.
For many many many years the east facade, which is highly visible from the adjacent highway, looked terrible. Even through the new work is not completed it is surprising at how different the facade looks. It has been transformed from abandoned ruin to work in progress.
