Evacuated 2011 - Day 60 - Aug 20, 2011

Yesterday was a good day in a couple of ways. Tom came back and we continued to take out more lathe and plaster. I picked up the floor jacks and installed 4 of them in the basement in key locations. I also removed the wall to the east of the furnaces to open that area up. I ran into Thor Nelson, a neighbor, who gave me the name of a structural engineer. It turns out the engineer used to live in the neighborhood and was a friend of Erik, our son, when they were in high school. Jay or one of the other engineers in their firm will be by on Monday or Tuesday to look at the basement wall problem. A listener called and had me call her son. He gave me the name of an electrician from Bemidji, Mn. who is in Minot working. He will also stop by on Monday or Tuesday to give us bid in rewiring as much of the house as we can.
We need to get power washed as I have a company coming on Thursday to clean all the duct work. They suggested power washing prior to the duct cleaning......
