July 22, 2020 – Just a short blog for the work today. Since we have the dumpster we want to get as much of the remaining demolition completed as possible. To that end, Jess and Phil are removing the old siding and I am taking out the living room and kitchen windows.
The last time we were removing the siding we stopped at this point. We have to finish setting up this scaffold section to remove the siding that remains on the gable end. Once that is complete we can continue around the corner towards the driveway.

Below, the framing to temporarily close up the living room window opening is ready to install.
Above, the kitchen window demolition is next. Siding removal down to the next corner by the electric service conduit.

When I took out the kitchen window we found Mikey Mouse’s brother, Mortimer Mouse hiding behind the window frame. Similar to Mickey, he has seen better days.
After the siding demolition we install tyvek building warp to keep the elements from entering the outside walls.
That does it for today. I guess this post was a little longer than I though it would be. Oh well…
