The Wandering Monk is due in an hour to commence the first and worst of the remaining structural projects on Ye Olde Wreck. I thought he’d be here last week, but … life.
There are eight projects for the rest of this year, three substantial and five mini. Compared with the work we did in May, what’s left is nothing. But it’s enough.
Project One involves a final round of foundation work — beam, “lite” jacking, and rot repair — plus replacing a section of floor and closet wall inside. Then swapping out a tiny, crooked, frosted former bathroom window with the nice, big window we pulled out of the bedroom when we tore its back wall off. Light from a big new window will be gratifying, even if the “view” is only my fence and the side of a neighbor’s house.
I’ll be minioning for I don’t know how long. I’ll sneak back in a few hours for a links post and will no doubt have construction updates as we go.
