|I use a 2"x12" pressure treated plank as a scaffold to work from. One must exercise caution when working in such a way.|
Painting continues at the Franklin St. rental. I decided to rig up a scaffold to get at the side of the house where the electric service comes in. Those big electric wires make me nervous. Working off the plank I was able to get the area around those wires scraped and primed yesterday. This morning I was going to put a finish coatr on before I went to teach guitar. However, those plans were foiled because of a heavy rain and thunder storm last night. It was still raining heavily this morning. Most depressing. We have had a lot of rain this Summer. I am sick of it. On top of that a roof leak revealed itself in our Chaumont home. I know the roof is old where the leak showed up, but I inspected it earlier this year and thought it would be OK until I completed work on the Franklin St house. Now I have to do something quick about the roof.
