False Spring

We are experiencing a 48 hour reprieve from a cold winter, and shoveling snow was fun in the sun and 30 degrees F. I have shoveled a path for the dumpster man who hopefully will bring a 20 yard can into our yard this coming week. Tomorrow I will begin on walling off the bottom of the stairs making a temporary door and space to further encase the demo that is about to begin upstairs. Tomorrow will also include the construction of a chute that will feed from the second floor out through a window and into said dumpster. It is still winter, so there will be a fair amount of sealing this all off to keep old man winter out. Then it is time to rock. Speed metal and heavy rock will be playing as I prepare to spend what could take a full week of lathe and plaster removal. The dust will be flying. Thanks to "Tony the Townie" we have some substantiated plans for the vaulting project.
