under construction III

a lot has been going on on with our construction site. the roof is leak proof, we know this for a fact. it has been raining a lot over the past week and never have i seen any drop or water lines on this or that wall. the metal worker has started to work up there too, "dressing" the chimney with a pretty copper skirt. gutters are being put up again and all is going well under the warming autumn sun of yesterday and today. no rain on those two days, which is nice for a change.

there are many little details, which i enjoy looking at, while still new and shiny. and of course the scaffolding makes it possible to climb up and enjoy the view high over the usual, very down to earth view points.
there have been little picturesque sights, like those gutters or below a hand full of new screws in different sizes. i love to wander and take it all in. it is also exciting to talk a bit with the workers and learn all kinds of interresting facts about the work they do and the way things work. there are also unfamiliar smells in the air, as the metal worker is welding...
