My friend Lesley came over to tour the house yesterday. She intends to spend many an evening dining on our deck and thought she should come and check on the progress and make sure she was happy with everything. Since my last post Surfer Boy has finished the ceiling in the studio, all the lath and plaster in the bathroom has been removed, and the shed now has insulation and is partially plastered. Lesley gave us the thumbs up thank god and even offered her entire family to help paint when the time comes! Silly girl.
