The Back Hall: What I Forgot to Mention

It occurred to me this weekend that I should have included the back steps in Friday's post about the back hall. The back steps are poured concrete, and the landing just outside the door slopes toward the house. It is awesome. It is also part of the reason why we have leaks. Therefore the jackhammering I referred to on Friday is primarily to remove the steps. We will have to be smart about supporting the roof though, because that wall is built on top of the steps. Also pretty awesome.

I'm curious what we are going to find as we begin demo. We really wanted to start ripping down the wallboard over the weekend, but we played it smart and held off. Why hold off, you ask? Well, first of all we need to figure out where we are going to store all the trash. We also need to figure out where to put the litterbox for the entire project. I hate the idea of it coming back into the house, but we have little choice. So, we'll try to figure those things out this week and get started on the messy stuff next weekend.

Dark and rainy today. Yes, that is moss growing 
in the welcome mat. Ahhh, life in Portland.
