So much happened last week I had to return to the house on Friday to get new photos.  It’s amazing how the addition of the roofing material changes the scale of the rooms upstairs.  The windows and doors are delivered and I am so excited by how nice they look.  We upgraded the first floor back door to fiberglass instead of the cheaper vinyl, thinking it would fit better into the historical feel of the rest of the windows and doors down there.  I am amazed at how nice it looks and feels, I can’t wait to see them installed.

Tomorrow I have to go to a scary meeting with the contractor, the structural engineer and the architect to discuss “an issue”. I think it has something to do with the new foundation that was poured at the back of the house, and I fear it might come with some sort of price tag. Yikes! Wish me luck.
