Det var på tiden......

med lite envist tålamod så blev det färdigmålat.
Titanvit linolja allover....med linoljekittade spröjs.
Gissa om jag är glad att vi delvis lejde bort arbetet!
 Samtidigt som vindskivan fick sin krusidull
Citronerna väntar nu på att bli gula,
 alldeles ypperligt läge vid köksingången.

Autumn is here and this also means time's up for painting outdoors with linseed oil paint.
The temperature is not warm enough and it's getting pretty humid in the air.
We are really pleased for closing this job in time, although with some extra help.
All those panes almost drove us insane......a set of 6 antique windows and 
a pair of doors that needed to be restored now close the kitchen porch
 ...and to mention the serious amount of the linseed oil putty.

This project took almost 2 years to accomplish, from the very beginning 
finding the old veranda amongst a lot of recuperated building material
'til the very last stroke with paint. What happened in between is a long story!

The lemon tree is doing great by this kitchen entrance
