Evacuated 2011 - Day 62 - Aug 22, 2011

I took the day off yesterday. Had to let the body rest for a day. I did not realize that I could have so many aches and pains in so many places all at the same time. We went and bought supplies and groceries for the farm. I will go by the house this morning and then again tonight on the way to the farm to empty the dehumidifiers. I may have to meet the engineer and an electrician today for estimates. I am thinking that in the long run it will be better to use a local electrician as I may have to rewire in stages. Some of the basement will not be able to be done until after the concrete is poured and new walls are built.
I was at a neighbors yesterday and checked out the beam he built and installed in his basement. We will do something similar but it will be longer than his. Ours will be about 24 feet.
The only lathe and plaster to finish is one side of the doorway into the main floor bathroom and the linen closet at the end of the hallway. Then the main floor will be done from the floor up four feet. As time goes on before rewiring we will take out more lathe and plaster. We will go higher in many if not all areas. Right now we are stripped down about a 18 inches above the water line and about a foot above the mold line.
By the way, if you are reading this, Happy Birthday to my twin daughters, Becky and Shyla........
