Here's a gratuitous Lily pic. It'll be 4 to 6 weeks before she gets on her "tree" again.

She will be getting screws to reattach the bones Friday in surgery. They may be permanent or have to be taken out later.
She's been a trooper, no complaining, but when she comes home to her new residence, a borrowed dog crate, she may be unhappy for the 4 to 6 weeks where she's not allowed to jump around.
Here she is in happier, lower altitude times.

Cabinet man showed up, decisions were made and measurements taken. Roof guys were there early and started removed sections of roofing...which leads into the Not-So-Great part.
That white "snake" is the electrical to the garage, which got cut today, so I'm using a
This is near a skylight where we thought we could just replace the bottom boards. I THINK we have enough to do it?

Just before I took out the post with "The Persuader", visible just above the table, a bulge was noted in the beam. It's gone now, the post AND the bulge.

Had the plumbers out last night after 6pm. Got inspected this am, passed, Poured concrete about 1:30 pm!
Also had the flooring estimator out for measurements and Q&A's. Electrician came by, PG&E wants a 3 foot higher mast on the power drop. I should mention that EVERYONE who looks at the long power drop goes "WOW, I've never seen one THAT long before" It's between 125-150 feet across an intersection. Cabinet guy's coming Fri to measure. Monday the roofers rip into the roof, we have the custom made lumber to replace what we need to tear out. ( 2X8 T&G)

The inspector DENIED permission to pour concrete! Minor details over how the sewer lines were installed and inability to hold pressure.
I STRENUOUSLY OBJECT!

It will look different because they have drilled large holes for the toilet and shower through the forms for the concrete. They say the first thing a new plumber learns is how to start a chain saw.
Also we have to run a conduit for a 50 amp 220 line for the garage for Moonrabbit's kiln through here.
The boards for the ceiling/roof are 2X8 T&G knotty pine, aren't made anymore, so we are having to have it custom made, $250 just to set up the saws I am told. Since the roof is being torn up, we are going to take out a skylight that no longer fits in the scheme of things, and replace some termite damaged boards that show in the main bathroom.
The boards will take about a week or two. The new, larger, front windows will be coming about then also. Still haven't hired a cabinet maker...
