First two days in a row it snowed about 6 inches each night.. will spring ever come?

Now, the STAIRS... what a sight, so glad their time has come.

taken apart... paint being stripped, being reinstalled.

Nail holes filled with putty.. all sanded... one final sanding then repaint..

.. just to sand, paint, size and cut stair treads.. then finishing..

Not taking as long as I thought.. as for the finish on the stairs.. research again !

Been a long time since I posted... hadn't been able to visit the house.. but, I finally got there..just for a day.. we left 5am Sunday, got home 9 pm Sunday, was a long tiring day.. but I enjoyed it.

Here is the picture I took of the kitchen.. no different but I got to snap it.

Here is the reason for the trip.. see the gully in the roof? It was full of snow, an ready to fall on the lower sunporch roof. We had to remove what we could, to keep all that additional weight off the lower roof.

And finally here is just an example of the amount of snow we had up there.. had a hell of a time keeping the kitchen floor clean..

next trip, maybe the front stairs an be started ,, it is sorely needed.. I'll post a pic tomorrow.
