The arch window arrived. The stained glass will insert on the interior side when it comes. John and Ken installed it before Hector's scary make-shift scaffold comes down. John the Mason will be back soon to start on the brick siding.

John's putting the remainder of the battens on the gable. Without having the window casing in place he couldn't cut all the short bits around it precisely. When it first went up the grooved plywood looked like mobile home siding to me. The batten strips really elevated the look, though. I fired up the table saw and router to make the battens myself - all 700 ft. of them!

It's hard to make out, but John and Ken got the beadboard porch ceiling installed also.
