Today Charlie and Chris finished the removal of the kitchen floor. The floor is down to joists only--those will be replaced also. We also planted Dogwood and Okami Cherry trees along the expanse of the driveway, hung ferns and petunias, scrubbed the outside of the house (the yellow paint is beautiful when deviod of cobwebs and filth!), painted primer on the new mailbox post, and cut all the grass. Chas is WAY too excited about the new riding mower--but it keeps him busy! Charlie also pulled baseboard moulding up in the downstairs due to mold and water damage---thank goodness the damage was contained to a small area. Tomorrow, I will sand the spackle in Grandma's room, reapply another coat, wash the walls in the room where the stairs are, and spackle the holes there. We will also take pictures of the damage to the joists and beams in the kitchen for documentation purposes, dig up the front flower bed, put a last coat of primer on the mailbox post, and make a list of the wood necessary for the rebuilding of the kitchen floor. The best news is we have confirmation from the roofers that the work will begin the second week of April! I can't wait!!!
