Siding all reinstalled on the wall next to where the Breezeway connects to the Servant Quarters. Dark purple drip cap reinstalled.
Menards finally put the light fixture we’ve been wanting on sale.  This has now been installed in the Dining Room. View of the new light and the ceiling medallion. Another view of the new light. View of the new light from the Sitting Room.

New footer attached to the new footings.  We should now have a nice, solid foundation to build the new wall on.
