Plaster moved to this weekend. Meanwhile, we have more cased doors and windows. Shares needed.

Well, more best-laid plans and all that. Clarence has had another job coming up, and he's needed for excavation and trenching this week, and maybe for a few weeks to come. So today it was just Tony and Carlos, and Clarence came by after his other job knocked off for the day to make arrangements for this weekend. He (and probably Carlos) will be here on Friday and Saturday to work on the float, assuming the pigments and mica are here.

So no plasterwork today, but Tony and Carlos got the casing done on the master bedroom doors (above ) and windows (here):

I think Carlos is going to take care of some additional touch-up lath work tomorrow, and Tony's going to work on the casing for other upstairs door, among other stuff. And we need to order the plaster pigments and mica, which is, of course, more immediate expense. So of course we still need link shares:
  • Wings's PayPal account, for donations to the house fund. [We've raised another $245, putting us at $7,745 thus far on this $30K stage, and leaving a balance yet to raise of $22,255. $7K+ of that is going to have to be reserved for the septic, and labor's eating us alive on the daily, so that's going to mean a lot of juggling.] If that link doesn't work, it's tied to his e-mail address: wingsoftaos [at] newmex [dot] com. Also, that link? It's a direct one now, rather than via the "Donate" button, so it should work better.
  • His Web site, for sales (always preferable, and the base upon which the whole project hinges anyway, along with paying our day-to-day living expenses) — and just by the way, he's got some really incredible new works up now.
  • Our Amazon wishlist, which contains Lowe's cards that will allow us to purchase some materials more cheaply than here in town, and also allow us to divert the extra funds to labor costs.
We can use shares on all fronts. I'm apparently still fighting this bout of pneumonia, and I have a ton of work to get caught up this week, even while I try to figure out how to fit all these rapidly-moving pieces together. For now, much love and gratitude to everyone.
