The week in review
It's amazing how much can be done when you hire a group of professionals to come in and do this kind of work. The 2nd floor is almost entirely demoed. The bathroom still remains, but I think usually they leave that for last for obvious reasons.
To sum it up here is a short summary of what was accomplished this week:
*2nd floor demoed
*95% of debris removed to dumpsters
*Replacement posts put in place
*Light fixtures ordered
*Comparing quotes for roof replacement (I could devote and entire post to this one)
Here's a photo of all the scary black insulation that came down from the ceiling. The previous photo shows it coming down.
Here is a shot of the posts in place.
Here's a shot of some frightening electrical wiring. The entire 2nd floor was running on about 60 amps (4 circuits). It could not run a large a/c to give you an idea.
Next up this weekend: Solving efflorescence and removing nails from trimwork. And that coffered ceiling needs to be very carefully removed.
