Home improvement

The first big push of the patch season was over on Friday. Finally! Working till 7:30 every evening was getting old. I think I can make my Zumba class tonight for the first time in a couple of weeks!

With the reprieve from patch-season stress, I was also able to summon up the mental power for a couple of projects at home.

The first of them is the Glass Soffit Project, which has turned into the Acrylic Soffit Project.

TAP Plastics supplied me with some nice thick frosted acrylic sheet material on Saturday, precision cut and drilled in less than an hour. It's lighter and more transportable than glass. Cheaper, too. And involves way less lead time. For someone with a bike and hardly any free time, it was a perfect choice.

I managed to mask off and prep and paint everything in the awkward soffit space above the cabinets near the ceiling. The frosted panels and some LEDs are going to turn that space from unsightly dark cave of Prior Homeowner Ineptitude to a sort of glowing overhead box of tasteful (and yet magenta) loveliness.

That's the plan, anyway.

Patch Season Part II begins next week and runs to December 6th. I'm enjoying the breathing space while it lasts.
