The last two weeks have been a real test of my patience! The framers have been working on the roof to expand the porch and cut back too far into the existing roof. This has been the wettest July on record in TN, not jut outside, but inside our house! Three times it has rained inside! Every time, they come back and put up a tarp and tell us "NO WATER can get in"; water gets in.
So far they have removed the dry wall in the living room....
and in the guest room to avoid mold growth later. We were supposed to move into the guest room two weeks ago so they could start on the master, but there is NO WAY I am moving in here now.
This is my craft room. They put in the hardware for a pocket door, but it was so low, I could barely walk through it. So the dry wall had to come off here too.On a much brighter note, this is the antique door I bought for the pocket door! I just love it.
Sweet Mr Creative, installed the bigger of the two kitchen sinks and hooked up the old faucet and even created a make shift counter top so we didn't have to wash dishes in the tub anymore!!
Here you can see the two sinks and beside each will be a dishwasher.
They started putting the planking on the dining room ceiling, but got diverted to deal with the leaking roof.
This is the expanded porch. It will have columns with corbels to make it look Country French and it will be screened in! Our contractor and architect said it was very unconventional to screen a front porch, but those who know me, know I am unconventional so it's perfect for me. If we are going to have a 14 x 40 foot front porch, I want to be able to use it and not be eaten alive by mosquitos.
Progress is being made, slower than I would like, but it is progress. 70% chance of strong storms tomorrow, so cross your fingers and send up a prayer that they finally got the roof sealed.
