My wife asked who's going to clean all those windows that open onto the flat roof? There's quite a few of them and they're extension ladder distance from the inside floor and there doesn't appear to be a hatch to get onto either of the roof...not to mention the extension ladder to reach said hatch.

At our new house they're working on the stair forms. They were expecting to use a standard sharp wedge winder, we said no. We compromised at the newer recommended truncated wedge but that means they needed to redo the forms.
Here's the fierce winter there
The snow is already melted and they're working away to keep on schedule.
Tomorrow should be clear and sunny so I will try to get some good drone shots during the day (they don't work on Sundays). If the weather is calm I'll fly off the patio roof which gives me much more room for maneuvering and might get some close shots of their handiwork.
Today was nice but I wound up working on an exercise machine we have. A steel plate fractured around a motor mount so I contacted the manufacturer yesterday. Since it was only 5 months old they gave a full refund and said keep it.
So, today I wire brushed off the paint and prepared to weld a brace on to restore functionality. What, you thought I was going to salvage the motor? I though of that but don't need the motor plus we like the exercise machine and want it fixed.
Anyway, pulled out the flux core welder and...&^%#$@! The wire feed assembly doesn't feed the wire. On inspection a plastic bit broke. On a web search they only sell the entire assembly (of course) for $90. So, I gathered tools, parts, duct tape, glue, and chewed some gum. It should hold for a while, I'll fix the machine tomorrow and then give the welder to someone as a gift. We'll buy a new one after we move Aliexpress is really handy.
