We had to privilege to be blessed by some friends yesterday. It is such a HUGE relief to have one the burdens hanging over us taken care of. Granted there is still some work to be done, but the major issue has been addressed.
When we bought our home, it was in foreclosure. Needless to say, there was A LOT of work that had to be done. but one of the main things was the 3 season room. The roof was bad, windows were shot and there was some structural issues that we knew were there but couldn’t see behind the paneling. So, we started to gut the room and we found that we had a HUGE hornets nest with bird mixed in the header above one of the windows. Also, the wood rot that had taken hold was insane.
So, this has been looming over us for about 2 years. There was no way we were going to be able to do this job ourselves. With us moving and needing to get our home on the market, this was a big thing that needed to be taken care of or it would cost us dearly. Mind you it had gotten worse since we gutted it. The top beam over one window had actually disappeared thanks the birds coming in and out of the hole they had created. Lovely little creatures, extremely annoying when they are stubborn. But, we had 7 people come yesterday and worked tirelessly to get the wall demolished and rebuilt with new windows tacked in.
We still have to wrap the house, put the siding on and put the new door in, but that will be on another day. The major job of that dreadful wall is complete. Thank you God for the love of people who you send out way and who are willing to take time out of their Saturday’s to help us. What a relief. Now on to more packing! =) Be Blessed!
