Below the window sills on the bay window were small cove moulding that were broken and rotted so they were tossed long ago. I have had 'buy cove trim' on my To Do list for at east three weeks. I finally purchased two pieces 8 feet long on Friday.
On Saturday, while it again sprinkled on and off, we measured and cut the pieces. R first cut a 45 degree cut and then a 90 degree cut to square off the very top. Saturday night was spent priming (twice) and painting the three pieces of trim. While I had the paint out I gave the window box and brackets (small window in peak) a fresh coat of paint.
Today we installed the trim and I crossed that small detail off my list. Yippee.
The other small detail that is taking sooooo long is the pull rings for the shutters. I finally found pull rings that were big enough without costing an arm and a leg. Unfortunately it will take 7-14 days to be delivered. So I can't install the small shutters until I can put the pull ring on first. Working high up on the ladder is tricky enough.
In turn this means that we cannot install the small storm window because I will need to reach out through the window to hold the shutter in place while R installs the long screw. So one small detail can hold up the whole shebang. Luckily for us.....we have a loooooong list of things that need to be done before the snow falls.
