Yesterday we woke up at 6:30am from the sound of the aerial lift starting up right in front of our bedroom. Well, we were in bed, and I was certain we had taken the key. Turns out, the repair guy had an early start. The problem was a blown o-ring (Dichtungsring), which led to the leaking of hydraulic oil.
As we were up, we got an early start as well. E! started prepping the south-side.
Meanwhile, I prepped the east-side, by replacing missing clap board. Before ...
... and after.
Originally, I was going to continue work on the hole for the grease trap (Ölabscheider), but the siding took priority. But this is how it works for us. Priorities shift, often very quickly. This is usually because we need to prepare something for a contractor to do their work, and less because we aren't as organized, though I wouldn't throw that too far away ... ;-)
