… that whenever I ask The Wandering Monk, handyman extraordinaire, how to handle a house problem, his answer involves matches. And sometimes accelerants.
Nevertheless — progress. I can now state that the foundation of the house is as stable, level, and rot-free as it’s ever going to get. Additions to the understructure have been done with ground-contact treated materials. Dubious portions of the periphery that couldn’t be fully corrected with new wood have been bug sprayed and preservative treated to the max. Whew.
There’s still more to do on the current phase of The Great Foundation and Screen Porch Project. Next up: floor repair and swapping out a tiny frosted window for the bigger one previously pulled out of the bedroom. Then putting back the siding on the east wall. That’s ongoing this week.
Then after a break comes framing the screen porch (whoohoo!) and siding currently exposed west and north walls. Pix will come along as I get them.
Gonna be a busy summer. Thank you all who helped make it possible, especially S and D.
The Monk to the contrary, matches will not be required.
