We were forecast to have rain all week, so we were feeling pretty gloomy about the likelihood of much progress. It did indeed rain a lot overnight and earlier this morning, but it is now sunny, and the house is swarming with men. They are trying to finish the roof framing as quickly as they can. There is also a lot of banging coming from the family room.
Met Achilles in the street this morning. He's been in conversation with The Structural Engineer, and the latter will be at the house tomorrow. They think they've got a solution that will allow the building addition to be tweaked so that no fudging is required, and no demolition either. A good thing.
