    This wall isn't holding much up any more with the new beams under the house, but it makes us very happy to see a sister wall getting put in. You can bury a screw driver in the old wall without much fuss.



    A hole like this where there used to be concrete would make Erin a little -um- anxious. Doesn't faze her at all any more.



    The guy bent over is right over the spot where the ammo can was found.



    Off to go get the gravy out of the bird.

    speaking of that ammo case......my wife Mary is curious, since you found that stash, whether a bit more scatching around might find some real cash behind a brick or something. Our reno only found some old newspaper insulation and a Rosary...... so the Priest came over and used it to bless the house (really). Nice touch but no money. - Bob

    Scott, make sure the recess cans are "airtite" so the room heat/cooling doesn't end up in the attic. Recess cans are also nice as they light the area, not the ceiling, so depending on the finish plaster/drywall, you won't notice imperfections. Don't forget to run an empty 2" conduit up to the attic, it will give you an easy way to add stuff later.

    Whenever possible, send the guy whose money you might inherit up a rickety ladder set on a pile of rubble.

    Knowing about a plan and preventing it are two different things! (he's sitting about 8' to me left and browsing this thread)

    Wow, this keeps getting better and better.
    Drugs, money. Let me know if you find any guns or lawyers.

    Exclamation

    If you find any lawyers, cover them back up and call for the best exterminator you can find.

    To quote Kbasa quoting a movie, "Two weeks"

    I've got some stories and updates I'll try to post tomorrow. The quick synopsis: Thank you for your work but now it's time for you to leave.

    OOOoooo this sounds like it's going to be good reading. I planed a low key Friday night, now it looks like home made pizza a few beers and curl up with my computer and read - Showdown at the 1908 Home.

    Nothing too dramatic. Just the usual ebb and flow of dealing with contractors.

    p.s. I find myself thinking about an R12R. Did I mention that I'm broke?
