Our house in its current state reminds me of Humpty Dumpty after all the kings horses and all the kings men tried to put him back together again. For the last 3-4 weeks our yard has been swarming with roofers, gutter installers, carpenters, (and Chris!) who are patching it up and making it look good as new.
The latest progress has been from the carpenters who replaced all the rotted clapboards and installed new clapboards on the sides of the dormers. A small but significant improvement.
