The latest work on the shed has been: 1. to organize the interior a bit better to make it feel more peaceful and easier to be in, 2. finish the windows (this involved cutting glass, which I found to be extremely satisfying!), 3. install insulation in the ceiling and then cover it with a thin sheet of plywood (still needs a line of trim down the middle), and 4. start the exterior plaster!
My dad asked me what the light-colored patch of the exterior plaster was all about. It's very simple - Danielle started plastering last week, as I was installing the windows - and then it got dark. Danielle's patch represents the finished, dry color of the plaster. The darker stuff is fresh and new.
