Highline Bluebirding September 30, 2020Bluebirding, Ranch, restoration Leave a comment Guest Bedroom Window. Was in rough shape. Of course. The storm window is repaired with the new paint curing til our next visit. If I’d put it in now the paint would all stick. As it is it is better than it was, even without the storm window up. The storm window hadn’t been removed for who knows…40 years…more… Storm window triage. I didn’t remove the glass- but most of the glazing came away easily. A cattle drive two weeks ago is the likely culprit, or the bear again; last time he just knocked it off the post. Pre-drilling before resetting the walls with 3.5″ screws. This evenings Bluebird line is above that hayfield, and on to the North to the end of our property. It is always really pretty up there. This group of 5 deer watched me clear one house, then moved up. They came back with 4 more at dusk, next to another group of 10. A steady wind on a perfect fall day. Tree swallows always nest in these models- just a bit too small for Bluebirds. The cows are let into the hayfield- a different one than shown at the bear lunchbox. The last two houses are all smashed apart and take some doctoring. The staples are just like in surgery- the invasive part is over and staples help hold everything together.
