still going......

I guess sometimes it looks a whole lot worse before things get better.......sigh.....

































We opted for spray foam insulation in the walls..... I sure hope the electrician knew his stuff....because when we come to "light up" ....... nobody will be moving any wires without chiseling them out of this stuff.  It is like concrete.





























and, speaking of cement .... those guys wouldn't listen when we told them it was too hot for this large a pour ...so...of course, it was too late to get in some expansion joints.... and now...yep....they will have to come back to do something 'bout it.....

as well as replace one chunk in the front where the expansion joint goes on a 20 degree slant instead of straight across ....right in front of the porch....arrgghhh!!!  it never ends with little things not working out just right .....and yesterday to add insult to injury.....the rental porta potty....sprung a leak and we had to call for assistance....it is hot, smelly and now...chemical all over the alleyway....we will get shut down at this rate.... and fined too if somebody is not vigilant.  Me.





















...... renovation saga to be continued.......................................

Good grief, I can handle all the other stuff, but not a Porta Potty leak for heavens sake, and in this heat. Gross! We had one of those things in the driveway for months during our construction. I don't miss it at all. Icky-poo!

It's nice to see you back Vee. I was thinking about you. xo

Nothing every goes to plan these days does it. We have to leave stuff to the "professionals" and then they disappoint us. I really hope these are just little glitches and that everything turns out perfectly in the end. x Jo
