We had a pretty decent amount of rotten fascia board around our house when we bought it. So Angel has also been cleaning up the rotten fascia and replacing it with clean new wood. You can see in these pictures he's done the piece right above that window, and he's also replaced the wood that runs up above the house. He had to remove some roof tiles in order to do this and I know this wasn't an easy task.
When he was up top on the higher section, he pulled off the rotten fascia board only to realize that all the wood behind it was also destroyed. It wasn't wood rot though - it was the product of TERMITES! Angel's words to me: Lynley, the termites had breakfast, lunch AND dinner on this wood up here! So it was really bad. This is what it looked like before they replaced it.
So it's all taken care of now and looking SOOOOO much better.
In other news...:
- The granite has officially been ordered and will be installed the week before Christmas. That is about the best Christmas present I can think of!
- The bathroom vanity pieces have arrived and we will be working on getting that repaired and *hopefully* installed this weekend.
- We have officially set the moving date for next Saturday, December 17th. Someone remind me why we thought it would be smart to move into a new house the weekend before Christmas?
And the fun continues...!
