That’s one heck of an alliteration in the title there, eh? I couldn’t resist.
Anyway, I’m commenting on it being February solely because I can’t believe how fast January has gone by. I mean, seriously, wasn’t it just Christmas, like, five minutes ago? (Yes, I said that in a Valley Girl voice.)
At the beginning of the month, all the insulation in the attic had been removed (it was vermiculite–a substance often contaminated with asbestos) and I was freezing. Let me say that again. FREEZING.
Four weeks later, the entire house is fully insulated (walls and attic), and now I’m sweltering. YES. SWELTERING.
Construction continues as a crew works to re-side the house. It’s hard to see maybe in these pics, but here’s the work in progress:
The circular holes are where the insulation was blown in.
This area has been fully sided.
I had the choice of like 30 siding colors. Because the house is Greek Revival, I fully intended on keeping the white. When I informed the fella directing the project of my plan, he was like, “Well, keep the samples, think about it for a few days. You could have different colors for the soffets, corners, molding…it’s all up to you. There’s lots to choose from.”
I chose white. For everything. (The shutters, when fixed, will still be black.)
What I like most is how the siding really keeps to the style of the house.
Although, I’ll prolly have to replace all the windows next. They look kind of…old, LOL!

As for writing, I’m editing my short story, TSAVO PRIDE. I have a trailer and a cover–WOOT!–so hopefully things will be in line for an early spring release. I hope you guys like it. It’s horror, which is different from NEW PRIDE and SHIFTING PRIDE, but it’s based on some folklore in SHIFTING PRIDE. 😉
I’m also slowly drafting the sequel, FRACTURED PRIDE. It’s gonna be good, folks, I pwommiss.
How was January for youse guys? What’re your plans for February? Whose gonna see WARM BODIES? And what about BEAUTIFUL CREATURES??? 😉
You’re writing horror? Cool!
For all the money you’re sinking into this house you could probably just build a whole new one.
Loved the valley girl voice! 😉 Sounds like you are staying busy, lady! New Pride was fantastic! I’m reading Shifting Pride now! Love it!! Congrats on your upcoming release and all the house renovations!
ooh,,, ME!! I want to see WARM BODIES. Think I’m going to take my daughter. 🙂
The house looks great! Any kind of home construction or remodeling can be a pain in the tush, though. Seems like we’ve been renovating my house since we moved in almost 13 years ago.
What a darling house! It has so much character, unlike most new ones.
January? We had a January? I think I missed it. 😉
I like the white. I think houses always look better when they’re white or a faded color.
No plans for February here. It’ll probably be over too fast anyway.
What a great looking house! Most people don’t realize how important good insulation is in a home. We’re currently renovating as well, but it’s been a slow process. Also, someone kidnapped January, it’s my only explanation. (;
I’m so excited Shifting Pride is moving closer to the top of my TBR pile. 🙂
