SO not the case.
As a highly-trained Project Manager, I can tell you that there was so much “behind the scenes” work being done.
This is a long-winded way of saying: sorry I haven’t been posting pictures. But you really wouldn’t have been able to see a difference.
Weeks 3 and 4 of demo, however…WOW.
the front of the house. the termite damage was SO extensive...
...that we removed the ENTIRE FRONT OF THE HOUSE.
Quote from the exterminator: "I haven't seen termite damage like this in a LOOOONG time." Well, that's because we don't half-ass anything.
Rebuilding the front of our house and framing out the biggest front window in America. (You're welcome, Vito)

wait until Vito sees his new window seat!
the front of the house is back up!
our termite friends got to the basement, too. more framing to replace!
an early-morning visit from the Project Manager to keep the workers on their toes.
