The Great Plumbing Disaster happened on April 18th. All damaged material was taken out and then we waited. And waited. And waited. Lots of different things needed to be ordered. The restoration company and the insurance company went round and round and round and round.
And today we have work starting. Four months we've gotten used to watching where we stepped and moving around various piles. I had time to pack up and move lots of stuff so I know where it is. Right now they are doing the downstairs which isn't too much trouble. The upstairs is going to be a real pain. And the dogs are an added factor. At 115 pounds Tar is enthusiastic and wants to HELP. GB will be back at the end of the week and he will be a big help to have around. This is so much fun! otoh - the house needed updating on flooring and the main bathroom so it is a blessing in a Big disguise.
