They're Here!

Today is the first official day of summer for me. Yesterday was the final teacher work day of the 2004-05 school year. What this means at Foxcroft is that the construction crew (F&L Construction) made up of three teacher colleages are at the house beginning demolition for the second floor finishing.

In order to determine how much support is needed for the gable in back they are going to take out the bump out into the kitchen that is made by the back bedroom closet. We had planned to remove this anyway since we will use the closet door to go from the kitchen to the family room, which will be in the back bedroom. I went over at lunch in between the workshops I'm teaching and shot a few fast pics.

To quote Navin Johnson, "Things are going to start happening to me now!"

So very exciting! I'm done teaching next week, but unfortunately I will be a crew of one each day until Nick is done with work. This sounds like a great project!

Thanks to both, it is exciting. For those that have followed and know the beginnings, we have waited for a year and a half to get to the point where we are now. I've always been a firm believer in lots of up front "think time" before starting a project, but action is good too.
