It's Labor Day, a day when American humans celebrate work by taking the day off! (Sounds like typical human logic, doesn't it?) Jack & I think there is no better way to celebrate Labor Day than to show off the fruits of our Dad (and Mom's ) labor!
Here is the new door and lights Dad put on the side entrance... and the lights work! That's because of all the hard work by the electric company workers after hurricane Irene turned off the lights in hundred of thousands of homes here last week. Mom says those workers are her heros! We hope they have a good day today (although we know they have to keep working till all the lights are on everywhere.)
Come on in and see what the pawrents have been up to -
Dad is finished with reconstructing the hallway! Check it out!
New tile, ceiling, walls, lights, doors....
gosh, everything's new out here!
Here's the view from our husky door (it leads out to our yard).
Mom made a special painting for this wall -
its right across from the bathroom for,
as I like to say, "an interesting view from the loo", ha-roo roo!
Mom based it on her photos of Rose Island Lighthouse
right here in Newport - she says its a furry interesting place to visit!
Here's a few pics of the hallway as it progressed:
the original back entrance (that's the bathroom window outside)
Having the back half enclosed:
New back door, starting the ceiling
(see the old "outside" door still half-way down the hall?)
July 2011: ceiling & lights in, concrete floor leveled out, vinyl & old shingle siding stripped off:
From no door....
To new door!
And thru it all, Jack has been lead Siberian snoopervisor.
That's today's veiw from the Moo,
