RE: I hate to have to ask...we need help.
We are having quite a storm right now. I suppose it's a good test for the window repairs/replacements from Thursday...glad all the sealant had time to set.

We haven't found any new roof leaks...this time.

The fence has been repaired and resealed.

Now if they would just come on with the interior work. I don't think my wish that things will be done by my birthday is going to come true...only 16 days left for that to happen.

But some progress has been made. Undecided

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

How much this time?

We are still working off the original insurance estimate...need ceiling and wall repairs, painting, and new floors. The crews are so busy that it's hard to get on the schedule...I am thinking I am going to have to raise some hell this week with the contractor.

I get that glass for windows was in short supply and the weather has not been helpful but it's time to get in here and get this house fixed. Undecided

At least the exterior repairs (and re-repairs) are under control. Now that the work has proven to be water tight, I'd make sure they don't just rush through too quickly with the interior. You don't want to give them an excuse to cut corners and end up with more shoddy work to be redone. Shy

Yeah, I know. I would just like to have the bedroom back and have my stuff back where it belongs. This is two months of chaos and disorder. Sadcryface

It's almost as if Mother Nature is trying to get rid of Texas.

RE: I hate to have to ask...we need help.
Well the living room, kitchen, and master bedroom are pretty much empty. The dogs and the cat are a bit confused.

The sheetrock and paint crew is supposed to be here in the morning to get started. For the better part of the next two weeks we will be living in one small room, a hallway, and a bathroom - basically a small hotel room. We still haven't quite worked out where the big parrot is going to be...probably in the garage.

At least the crew agreed to work around the couch - moving it as necessary. It's been my bed for over two months. I really didn't want to have to sleep in the recliner.

I am so ready to get this done.

I sent an estimate in for repairs that need to be done to the pool due to all the debris messing up the pump and filtration. I really expected that insurance would pay maybe a quarter of it since it's so old. Found out today they are paying the entire estimated amount! A man is supposed to be here tomorrow to replace all the valves and do some other piping. Thankfully, it won't turn into a swamp now.

I will get pictures as we go along.

Looks like you are moving right along.

Hugs....

That's all I got....


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces
