I didn't take good enough pictures of the 2 huge concrete/rock rubble piles that I had to throw out the window. You can sort of see them behind the columns on the before pics.
And here's all that trash outside the window and we actually found a window down there that fits this frame! Score! There are actually about 10 trash bags there, even thought it looks like only 3.
Also, I made a very important discovery while down there. We thought our water heater was about to go because there is always a wet spot around it in the front. See:
Low and behold it is a PIPE right above that with a leaky connection. DOH! How we never saw that before, I have no idea.
Marc was very busy during this whole weekend working on finish trim for the back porch. (oh, my did I just say "finish" and "back porch" in the same sentence? No way!) He is trying to get it done so that the painters will paint it instead of us. He had to notch out this entire top board around every stinking rafter tail.
There are actually 2 boards up there, you just can't see it too clearly.
