We are planningmiki soos logo Saturday work days at the cottage on August 17 and 24.

Saturday, Aug. 3,  we worked on lime plaster on the corners and outside patches.

On August 17 we will not be there until after noon. We will paint the inside walls. Maybe outside as well, depending on how dry the plaster is.

August 24 we will be installing the floor.
