The painters have gone and the world of Sparrow Haven has returned to normal. It's a relief to have our home to ourselves again. The birds are beginning to return to the feeders. The cats and dogs have settled back down to our normal routines. Saturday morning we can sleep late knowing that no one is scheduled to knock on our door.
I promised to share photos of the final result. In the end we have a freshly painted house, porch, garage trim, and roof. The painters used an aluminum oxide paint on the tin roof giving us a few more years of service while sprucing up the looks of the place.
