I was concerned at first that there wouldn’t be space for the top piece below the light box. Turns out there just barely was, leaving a space so slim I had to paint the top edge of the trim before I installed it.
I’ll give the caulk today to cure. Then tomorrow is for painting trim and (oh frabjous day!) breaking down the work table and hauling it out to the woodlot. I have one electrical project to finish on the cabin (and you know how I like to put off electrical projects) and the solar panel rack and woodshed both still need a coat of paint but other than that I am DONE WORKING ON THE CABIN FOR THE YEAR!
I have a decision to make, though, and I need to make it by tomorrow morning: I’ve never been entirely happy with the plan to paint the back door the same color as the trim. Looking at what Claire’s been doing with her house – she’s got three colors going on and it looks really good. Counting the white of the Lair’s front door I sort of do as well and it occurs to me that it might be better to hold off painting the door till I score a quart of white semigloss, rather than painting it the red/brown trim color. What do you think?
