Upon entering Glade Cottage there is a ladderlike staircase that goes through a hole in the ceiling.
The cottage has a full attic. You can’t stand up in it but has been fully floored so it’s a great storage area.
Years ago Charlie started to insulate this attic to make the main room below a little cozier in winter and cooler in summer. It was never finished so now he’s taken to finishing the job and at the same time cleaning the attic of dirt, dust and mouse droppings.
The insulation is stapled to the rafters with the brown side inside to allow the roof to breathe but at the same time keep excess moisture out of the cottage.
Last summer I painted the ceiling on half of the cottage and now can see where completing this job would make a nice finish to all the work we’ve been doing over here.
I’ll get on it directly.
What dirty job is last on your list?
