Last week, while the deck was still in place, the double window on the top floor was replaced to allow room for a hipped roof over the soon-to-be built porch.
Notice, too, the board nailed across the doors that will open onto the new addition.
Unfortunately, I left yesterday morning just as the crew was arriving and didn’t return home until after dark, so I missed the excitement of seeing the deck removed. The construction time is estimated at 10 weeks, but some of the materials were not ordered until we (finally) had the building permit in hand, so there could be a delay.
But, oh, sweet progress! Next up…bulldozer removal of the 1952 patio!
