The Work Has Begun

On Sunday, the south side of our house looked like this.

On Monday, the workers got started. They were lucky that the predicted snow stayed along the coast. The siding was removed, and they were getting ready to shift the small downstairs window.  Both downstairs windows were replaced. 

This morning they were not as lucky, as it was flurrying a bit. They cut the hole for the new upstairs window, and are getting ready to replace the other upstairs one.

As of this moment, they are replacing the attic vent, and we are wide open to the outside, but at least the sun has come out.

Did you notice the ladder in the last picture? Patrick, the guy on the scaffolding, caught the ladder with his foot just in time! And for once, the camera was handy.

Will be thinking LOTS of good thoughts for good weather and a quick and successful project completion. :)

Well, the weather gods seem to be on your side so far. When is it the guests are due?

I am so *NOT* jealous of your renovations :o) Cute catching the ladder moment! Have a wonderful holiday season!!!! I look forward to another year of blogging with you!

Wow - you are one brave lady to undergo all this during the holiday season. And what a break you got with the camera catching Patrick as he made his heroic catch of the ladder. I'd like to have a video of that along with the yell that accompanied it.
