I had the task of piecing together bits of 40 year old plywood, to match the oddly shaped gaps on one wall of the house. A Skil saw is not a precision instrument. Not perfect fits, but good enough to cover things before the wrap and stucco are applied.
a skeleton and a pirate walk up to a door…
nearly all of the demolition work is done – some drywall is still left, but it can wait until framing starts.
the remnants of the wall, after yanking off the siding, stucco, plywood, and insulation.
we spent the day at my sister in-law’s house, prepping a giant pine tree for takedown to make room for some renovations. Evan brought his skateboard to ride on the street, and wanted to help out with the Stihl. (no, he didn’t get to actually start the chainsaw – but his old man put it to good use).
We took the branches off the bottom 2/3 of the tree, and now the pros can come in with the big equipment to bring down the trunk without wrecking the house.
