In the last couple weeks, we god some window in this little project and started on the siding.

We pre-stained the siding a dark brown. Here the first courses are going on:
It seems like the project is going slow, but we have run into some decision making snags and things that took some time. We are off and running now, though there is only one man working on this at this point.

The other guys are still tied up on this project, where we have just finished the exterior stain. Strange to be doing that this time of year, but the weather has been so nice, we left off some of the inside finishing to get this done now. You never know when we will get three weeks of rain...

Mean time I decided to start picking up pencil again...

Interesting little project this last week, installing an elevator.
We constructed the elevator shaft when we built the house, not knowing exactly when the actual elevator would go in, but the scheduled it for last week and there you go.
Not mush else going on. The ice went out on all the lakes last Monday or Tuesday. Even Burntside. I haven't talked to anyone who can remember ice out this early. Maybe it will actually get warm enough to swim this year, or...Heaven forbid, watch a little league game in just a T-shirt.

Still way above normal temp for this time of year...all the snow is gone. A year ago today we had about 8" of new wet snow.
...but what is one to do about the weather. It is what it is. Maybe we wont even get the end of season snow storm, but I am not putting the winter boots away just yet...

Here are a few pictures of Burntside lake, with the ice receding from the shoreline. A lot of the smaller lakes have the ice already out.
