Snow here in maritime Portland is not very common. We might have 1 or 2 days of snow per year, or go an entire winter without any at all. This week, however, we’ve had quite a bit. We got about 5” on Sunday and have had snow off and on every day since. There is more snow in the forecast through next week. It's a lot of fun at first, but now that the novelty has worn off, I'm ready for it to move on. Still, I never pass up a chance to get yet another shot of the house with snow.

William’s bedroom is almost done. The carpentry and staining are done. All that is left is painting the walls and brushing the finish on the closet built ins. This is the last room upstairs that needs work. After this, we will be officially done with the 2nd story addition. Whew.

I didn't stain the woodwork in the closet, which is consistent with the rest of the house. As soon as I'm done brushing on the finish, I'll mount the drawer pulls.
