My daughter and son-in-law got the keys to their first house yesterday. What a beginning! They knew, based on their first visit to the house, that there might be items that wouldn’t leave with the previous occupant and that expectation did not disappoint. This is some of what we arrived to:
So, a quick review of the situation brought them to the conclusion that nothing could be removed until the dumpster arrives on Monday, at which time my daughter will also call their lawyer to see if there is any recourse. In the meantime, demolition could proceed, so, of course, it did!
The garbage that had been bagged up on Friday night, along with the carpets that had been lifted, needed to be removed. Two of the kids’ friends came with their pick-up trucks and hauled it all off to the dump. That gave us floor space to start working.
Once the dumpster arrives it will need to be loaded up. There are also some purchases that need to be made like windows and doors. Next week the kitchen and bathroom will need to be demo’d and new footprints planned. A bearing wall needs to be removed and a temporary wall installed until a header is added. And…well, you get the picture! It’s going to be a busy few weeks but we’ll get there!
