my construction update
The windows and back door have arrived. They are stacked up in the bedroom.
The builder called last night with the projection for the next week:
The carport should be going up today and tomorrow-am I ever glad, I'm tired of scraping frost off the windshield. I got spoiled the four days I had it cleared out enough to park in before we tore down the old one.
When the carport is done they'll start on the dormer. Last night I took down the shutters in the skylight---anyone need a pair of expensive plantation shutters 29 1/2 by 45 inches? I wish I had a use for them somewhere, but they won't fit any of my windows. They kept the loft 10-15 degrees cooler for the last 8 years, so I guess I got my money out of them.
They'll have to take down the bed to work in the loft. I might spend a night or two on the couch. I'll have them leave the bedframe downstairs. I want to repaint it before moving into the new bedroom.
After that, the new shingles go on. He thought they might start popping in windows this weekend, but looks like it will rain, so maybe not. I expect they'll hit some snags on the windows, some of the old sills are very rotten.
