When storms threaten your plans.
“Water is up to the second floor stairs. I couldn’t get to the ledge because I was neck deep in rainwater and tools and cats are floating every where.” This is what my son texted me when I asked him if water was getting into the farm house last Saturday. At first I wanted to smack him, then I laughed and realized everything was fine. I found out later, our contractor and his wife worked all day Saturday in the off and on again rain showers trying to get our new addition closed up.
Here is my son, Alex, relaxing in his new hammock at the farm.
When I left Friday, the house was still very much open. The floor was being worked on and I couldn’t see how they could possibly get it all closed up before the rain hit on Saturday.
But Steve and his wife Michelle were our heroes on Saturday as they worked together until it looked like this.
This is a view from inside the house and you can see the mud puddle out in what will become our back porch.
Thankfully this week has been dry, sunny, and cooler so lots of progress has been made. First, the main floor and stairs to the basement went in.
And then the walls . . .
A big thanks also to Bill, Steve and Michelle for all their hard work in the sun, heat, and rain to make our dreams come true.
