Day 51 -- Two Steps Forward...

Just when we felt like we were starting to put things back together, we had to cut holes in the walls for the posts that will support the bond beam. They had to go in the front room, office, entryway and dining room...Almost every room on the main floor. You wouldn't believe the amount of dust! They actually had to jackhammer our walls. The engineer says they are necessary, but it's just so discouraging to have the room starting to come together and have to do something like this. Hopefully they'll be patched up by the end of next week.

It wasn't all bad today, though. They did fix the bricks on the front porch gable. Here's a before and after.

They also removed the ugly white vents that didn't vent anything and replaced the brick. They also replaced the brick above the dryer looked horrible before and always bugged me. Another before and after.

It rained pretty hard this evening...No leaks since they finished the roof today! It's done...really done! There was a spectacular double rainbow that I just had to take a picture of after the storm.
"There's a kiss at the end of the rainbow,"..... come on, you know the rest.

I'd go in a different direction - "why are there so many
song about rainbows
And what's on the other side?"

Do you HAVE an end date estimated?

"fulogrop" - that's the captcha for today's comment : )

Well, we'd like to have the contract completed by August 1. That's the goal. I could see them coming in under that date if all goes well. When they first said August 1, I was pretty skeptical, but it looks like it's doable.

P.S. I had to look up the definition of "captcha"....I just lost 10 points on my geek cred.
