So, currently the only things holding up the front of our house are six (6) two-by-fours. Fun! Mark and our friend Jon have gotten a heck of a lot done today. Thanks, Jon!
They managed to figure out a way to do it so that we don't have to take the column trim apart. We can slide the new column up into it instead. We'll see how that works in reality later. But at least instead of three separate column segments, it will be one continuous 4x4.
The biggest question remains, however: why does this work always seem to happen on the hottest days? (See yesterday's post - yeah, it's that hot) Also, today is the Greenwood Classic Car Show, which means that all day people have been parking in our neighborhood and walking past our house. And doing double-takes, most of them. It's pretty funny to watch.
