Well, construction did not begin on Monday as planned. Rain poured from the sky for two days before the sun broke through and dried up the air! Bright and early this morning, the crew showed up and now it's "BangBangBang goes the hammer! Crunch crunch crunch goes the stucco!" They are ripping the stucco off the side of the house. I am going to be living in a mess of tarp and mud! :(
Still no answer from the owner of the house next door. We are hoping to rent his house for a couple of months, but we can't seem to get him on the phone. All we have is a voicemail number. He has to be around though. He had workers over there for the last couple of days.
Well, here's to construction! :-)
