November: The Money Pit, part 5

After a full weekend of work, all of the carpentry is finished.

Saturday afternoon:

A tiny issue with the roof:  it was visibly not level.  It appeared that the back of the roof was level to the siding and the front was level to the ground, and since the house is not level, the roof looked a bit twisted.  This morning's task was to make the roof the same degree of unlevel as the house, which they did successfully.  Of course, first there was much shrugging of shoulders and muttering amongst themselves in Serbian.  We don't speak Serbian but "Give the client what they want, even if it makes no sense to me" sounds about the same in every language.  Too bad!

Pay no attention to the woman behind the tree; Foley does not like the camera flash and bolted for the door as soon as this was taken

Wow, that went quickly! I bet you're glad that your house is supported again...

I'm amazed how much is done already. Lucky you that the weather has been cooperating.

Our construction that should have taken two weeks dragged on for six, mostly because of all the rain. George is so happy not having to trek through concrete rubble anymore to relieve himself.

What a difference - it looks really wonderful.

Foley does seem to have the "deer in the headlights" look. Still cute though.
