nice piece of work

I have tentative approval of some property owners to set about fixin' up their place. Water damage has done some nasty stuff to the sill and footer on this sun room, so it will have to be stripped back to the rafters, at least along the front, in order to be repaired. We're going for some super heavy-duty laminate 2x12 stuff to replace what is rotted away. Saw it at the lumber yard the other day. Looks incredibly tough. Looking forward to working with it. May have to hire my brother-in-law for a couple of days to help with the heavy stuff. Will find out more details later today. Am busy making sketches now on graph paper, considering what the windows will look like with a wall such-and-such high. I'm looking forward to this a lot. It is nice to be able to take out the rotted stuff and replace it with something that looks nice and works better than the original stuff. Very nice indeed.

Looks like a challenging project. Fixing water damage always is.

Don't forget to put jacks under it before you start ripping things apart. Wouldn't want an ex - relative if you know what I mean.
