My cousin Kira came down again to help us with our living room painting job. This was the biggest room of all to paint. Many hands make light of work, as they say.
Everyone chipped in a little, including Sebastian. We painted the walls, and the entire ceiling. I had to rebuild three vents within the cupola that were still boarded up from the hurricanes (Maria and Irma) that blew them out before I purchased the home so we could finish the ceiling. I will be covering that rebuild in a future post as I have more to do on the back bedroom cupola currently still.
To get up into the lattice work, I needed a tall extension ladder, extended about 18-20′. It’s pretty high when you’re up there – not going to lie.
By the end of the week – we were able to hang our prize jewel – the 8′ ceiling fan. This thing is amazing and puts off a great amount of air. It’s remote controlled and can both pull air up into the cupola to be ejected out of the vents, or blow air down on us creating a very nice indoor breeze.
I’ve had a few other small projects that popped up as well. I replaced the entry doors in The View with the french doors that Dave and I didn’t get around to last time he was here, and I also replaced and plumbed a new water pressure tank in the house.
