The entry hall has always been somewhat dark, so we're planning to
lighten it up with a skylight. They cut a hole in the ceiling for the
skylight, only to discover an asbestos-wrapped pipe right through the
middle of the skylight.
Bob and John then moved outside to work on the dining room, removing
the header over the north wall. When they were through, they again
boarded up the opening to provide some protection from the elements.
When the wind began howling, however, the tarp over the roof blew
off. And the plate glass window that had been removed from the dining
room fell over on the grass. Now I know why we make it a point to get
away from those windows during an earthquake. (The replacement windows
will be tempered glass.)
Muir discovered the pile of dirt in the kitchen, and has decided it
makes a fine place to dig. We haven't told the workers.
