The long wait for shingles has finally ended and we have shingles!

House Update #9 – New Joists

Last Monday, January 6th, the building permit finally went up in the window. It was a very glorious, long-awaited piece of paper! It had been 192 days since the fire…not that I was counting or anything! Upon the demo work (and more) that had happened in October, it was concluded that the entire kitchen and…
