Progressing! As of tonight, We have the 2 main interior walls framed!
Not only that but we found the top of the concrete basement wall so we were able to plan the exact floor level to allow plumbing & heat ducting. Sounds as if were going about this bas-akward I know. The prior owner had at one time a basement leak so, he dug out all around and poured a second basement wall, then re-walled the main floor….so from the exterior, you couldn’t tell where the floor we are joining to was located. We could have just cut the new entry but, we don’t have the exterior door on yet…..we needed to set the darn floor level! But, we have it now so we can move forward! He didn’t say it but, I think Larry was worried we would end up needing to punch through to the existing living space.
We’re at that awkward point, the exterior is up & painted, the interior is framed but it also cuts out a lot of natural light. We have one light fixture in…kind of a redneck porch light inside the addition (so we don’t trip over anything) as the evening wears on we will have to set up the big glaring work lights.
Chris & Erika came over Sunday and said “can we help?” A resounding YES! and they were handed paint brushes and put to work applying the first coat to the exterior & working on the tan This supervisor took her job seriously!Until she was caught napping on the job!
I think we all envied her …shade and a breeze.
Erika had the stitches removed. It’s healing pretty well but, she will need repair to the interior of her lip. She has large knots of tissue that will need to be minimized or they will cause problems down the road. 90+ degrees meant mandatory pool breaks were in order Compost boy looks heartbroken right?
Such a tough life!
