"We will get started on the house on Monday. Until completion"Okay, so I assume he means it's go go go now, until completion. But what I know is we'll start Monday-- as in 60 hours from right now. This has been in the hold stage for so long that even the kids were excited about the news. Abby was upstairs when I got the email on my phone, and they ran up to show her-- Lola with the phone in her hand, and Isaac as the announcer. To celebrate, we all sat at the dining-room table and drew pictures of our new house. Lots of flowers, and an overabundance of teal... no green marker to be had... but it all looked good to me. (Lola actually drew two big oblong ovals, one in red and the other in blue, the former for Isaac's room and the latter for hers.)
UPDATE: Looks like what will happen starting Monday is the beginning of demolition and framing. You may remember back on Xmas Day we went over and banged on some walls. Well... we never cleaned it up, and we couldn't exactly get to the ceiling in the Great Room, so half of that Great Dividing Wall is still there, as well as all the paneling, etc. Roofing looks like it'll be started in the middle to the end of the week. Progress!
