Five Days in CanadaPosted: July 22, 2011
Last Friday, we left for a 5-day trip scheduled long before we knew the start date of construction. Very inopportune timing. We missed A LOT.
On Friday, the last major deliveries were made.
Lumber and plywood:
Not one, but two dumpsters:
Then on Monday, the carpentry crew arrived to prep the roof for removal.
First they cut the over-sized overhang from around the perimeter of the current roofline:
Then, they tarped their work to protect the house from any rain.
On Tuesday, the crane arrived to remove the roof while the boys supervised from across the street:
Greff provided a birds-eye view:
And, the view of the now-removed roof from the ground:
Then, the crane lifted the floor joists up for installation:
Pretty eventful couple of days to miss! The rest of this week, they’ve managed to set the floor joists and deck for half the house… doing so in 100-degree+ heat indexes. Somehow the FlavorIce seems like the absolute least we can do for the amazing crew working above.
