The next phase has begun and we are taking in down fast as we open it up to the weather and harvest the top before taking out the floor as this one has that masonite staples inserted by a “Mad Stapler operator” whom they should have limited on staple clips.
B-grade floor with tons of work to get it out. Last priority on a job like this, as it is, a huge amount of work but worth it for the most part.
The termite damaged area is substantial but not enough to keep us from netting well off the whole of the house that was not damaged.
That sort of damage does make it a bit scary as you walk upon the boards above with ends often eaten out or compromised below.
dropping the ceiling boards that will let us get the ceiling down before the roof.
Here you can see the siding before it is being taken off.
Here is the house with a good chunk of the exterior siding removed. Can’t take much more while still working n the roof or it could get destabilized and shake. Not good for a house to collapse with people inside or on top.
Cain is out there on the site, with Jerry, Pitbull, Max, and Cirrino.
Here is the beaded wood from the ceiling on the porch. These are the only pieces missing originally, but then we can get a bunch of wood that will nearly cover an entire Tiny Texas House ceiling or wainscot.
The early part of the day and the house with the siding on.
The inside view of the attic before the tin is removed by the end of the day.
Top view of the porch that is being taken down next.
Over coming the fear of heights is essential and passes after a while up there and learning to focus on the task at hand without thinking about falling. Cain has nearly reached that point but is still a bit nervous, which is healthy on a house like this.
Beaded wood falling from the sky, well the porch roof at least.
The roof members will add up, though a bit short, they are great material.
