Club house Renovation - 2019 - Part 1
« on: June 03, 2019, 10:44:01 AM »
The work started on Thursday. Tear off old siding, strip out interior panelling and insulation. Relocate the mouseys who had resided happily therein for many generations (they self-deported!). Fill a giant dumpster almost to the brim. All ready for the construction crew.

As the pictures show, a lot occurred over the next couple of days. The official count on Saturday was 27 low paid workers (hamburgers). At one time there were FIVE fully qualified carpenters on site, our master electrician (John P) and his trusty assistant. Sort of like an Amish barn raising, but with power tools!
 
On Sunday, a small contingent carried on with more siding to complete the 3 sides of the building. The east side's exterior and the interior now remain to be done.

First dozen pictures are here, the next batch in following post(s):

You may be a bit disappointed, D, as our nice green "easy" chair is no longer there! Methinks that the mouseys may have absconded with it during the pandemonium. After all, there was a lot of history associated with the thing, especially within the local rodent kingdom. Tough bananas, D !

Thanks to Vicki, who spent most of Sunday painting the trim around the east windows, the outside counter top, various other locations. Very fine job, indeed! (No black flies were killed and entombed in the process!).

Vicki is an "artiste" with the brush and roller. She used a nice color that matched the new siding. It even has a name, "taupe"! Who knew?  Interesting, seeing as some of us can only attach names to, say, 5 or so colours. It think that "taupe" is pronounced similarly to "dope". (Either that or she was referring to me while trying to explain it ...?)

According to Wickipedia:
Taupe is a dark brown color between brown and gray. The word derives from the French noun taupe meaning "mole". The name originally referred only to the average color of the French mole, but beginning in the 1940s, its usage expanded to encompass a wider range of shades.

Aside:
This colour must have something to do with aviation, as one of the great early aircraft was our beloved Taube (note that if you flip the 4th letter upside down, you get this colour name thing). Incidentally, taube in German means dove.  I have a book called Taube, The Dove of War and also have an rc model Taube which is very loosely patterned after the famous Etrich Taube.
