The rest of the insulation got completed and the drywall went up. It looks great. I can't believe how many nails it takes to hold up those boards. If each one were $25 dollars then I understand the budget.
Speaking of budget we hit that terrible point. We have officially gone over budget. What was all ready a step cost has now increased to where am I gonna find this extra money?
As they were ripping down insulation in the entrance way they noticed it was wet and the roof overhead of it will now need to be replaced.

But they won't put up any new insulation or wall until the roof is fixed, what would be the point. How am I gonna find the money for this?
He hung some lovely drapery to block out the cold for us. The kids think it is curtains to a stage. It is too funny to watch them make their entrance again and again.

It just looks like such a mess. Such a house of compiled garbage material. This is not a house worth saving, restoring but it is our house and we have to.

And the I want to sell it. We will probably have a rental on our hands.
On the bright side avoiding construction I went over to the computer and a message popped up to come have lunch with my son. Quickly Jay and I gathered our self's dropped Smiley at a sitters. We really enjoyed being able to spend some time and a nice lunch with our surprised son.
