Finally we have had three or four absolutely perfect June days, the kind you dream about in February in Ohio. 70 degrees, low humidity and no rain. Last weekend was very hot and humid and non-rainy, too, so John had a chance to paint his handiwork. Now a sparkling white lattice work graces the front entrance. John the historical restoration mason is now a restoration carpenter, but only around the house. His heart is still in stone and lime mortar.
And although this house is 60 yeas old, it doesn't qualify as any sort of historic property, other than being the sort that was built after WWII as a starter house foe young post-war families, which I guess is kinda, sorta historical.
