We learned recently that Bill, who is supposed to be semi retired…. haha… will be working full time M to F for the next several weeks. Next week Saturday we have a wedding to attend, and this past week had a few evening meetings, so time to work on the house is not as available as it was. Thankfully we’re getting close to the end of demo, and soon we will be rebuilding with the help of Lincoln Construction and our amazing trades.
One of them is a cement saw cutting guy. He’s coming on Monday to cut a hole in our foundation wall at the back of the house to allow for an Egress window that we just received. (Ordered over 10 weeks ago!)
Here’s the window that will be going in the future new guest room in the basement.
It tilts as well as opens fully like a door for a fire escape.
And this is my amazing digger.. who dug the 7′ L x 3′ w x 4′ deep hole. Oh yah. He still has to cut the grass too..
The writing on the wall is for Harry who is coming on Monday.
Then Bill got to work on the bricks
A rare break for this hard working guy
Our neighbour came by and brought us yummy cherry tomatoes.
Meanwhile I finished pulling nails, hanging laundry, and then sweeping, shovelling and finally vacuuming all the construction debris, while Bill got started on ripping up the old Quarter Oak floors
My buddies for the day.. a broom, shovel and shop vac (yay for CT points, we picked this new vac up for free!)
Thankfully we finally got a break on the extreme heat, it was a PERFECT day for me.
Parting shots of where we’re at now.
