Still Not Finished

The good news is that only 1 truss was broken.  The bad news is the trusses order were the wrong fucking size!  How do you screw it up after measuring twice on two separate occasions is beyond me. AND…no one ever actually got in the attic to even check shit out!!

The company we went with to do the work…doesn’t actually even do the work!  They sub it all out.  FFS!  Thankfully, we have a seemingly great contractor working on things.  He and his team made the truss work even though it was cut and built wrong.  He said this company that did that is notorious for it.  Now we are waiting on an electrician for the wires to be moved above the truss.  Half the roof is shingled.  The other half should be done on Friday.  There is dry wall up covering as much as possible until the wiring is addressed. Then it should be on to mudding, texturing, painting, etc.

All in all, we could be looking at another two weeks before all is said and done.  The company doing the actual work has a slew of other jobs they are doing as well so we are being worked into the schedule.

They are calling for rain, thunder, and wind this evening.  Possible hail.  All we can do is hope nothing goes crazy and that the wind doesn’t decide to blow away anything.

I am still technically offline.  But I managed to get my ancient laptop working enough to access the blogs and email. I think this thing is still running off XP!!!!!!!!!  But all I had to do was update my browser and I can actually view stuff and of course hop on the blog.  This makes me a bit happy.

So that’s where we are at for now.  Just gotta keep hoping for fair weather.
