A house project is like a disease that begins with a little cough but then develops into a one-thing-after-another scenario. The deck slowly rotting off of the back side of the house was like a symptom that we chose to ignore until it got bad enough to demand unequivocal attention and treatment.
So there is major demolition/construction happening now, and it isn't limited to the deck. The coming weeks will involve a new roof, a new door, a replaced concrete slab, and a remodeled bathroom.
Two cement trucks, like giant mating dragonflies, blocked the road in front of the house yesterday AM.
They ran a big fat hose to the back of the house.
And now bright blue, because of light reflecting off of a tarp overhead.
"More like clogging than jigging," the dancing workman explained carefully.
Pretty neat. In a day or two the dust will be washed off and the final surface will be revealed.
