Now for the house. Work has been started. Fri. they preped the master bath for work and Sat. they came in and put in a new access space in the ceiling. They'll be back on Mon. to continue that and get started on the master bathroom ceiling. On Tues. they will start the kitchen ceiling. The house is a mess but I figure that's okay. When they're done this will be nice. Also on Mon. we are supposed to have a crew come in and get started on the trees outside. They are supposed to thin out the dead braches, cut back a hedge and reshape it, cut ground cover from around trees and put in a gravel/rock walk path in the back yard. Work inside the house will take a while, not sure how long, but the outside work is expected to take about a week.
It'll take a while but we're getting there. Its a good feeling to get it started.
