Evacuated 2011 - Day 80 - Sep 9, 2011
Yesterday was a day of progress. Real Builders is working in the basement replacing the load bearing walls. 2 are being replaced with a large beam and one wall will be rebuilt with a new 2 x 6 wall. They could be done by tonight. The dumpster is full and ready to get picked up for the last time. I was able to get all the sheetrock and pegboard out of the garage so it is stripped down. We hired a heating and a/c contractor from Grand Forks. They referred an electrician to us. I met with them and hired them also. The electricians will be starting next week, possibly Monday. The first thing will be to get us a 30 or 50 amp breaker in our temporary power so we can run the big fans, dehumidifiers and heaters when we dry the basement. Ray, our concrete guy, is going to see about pouring concrete in the basement next week. Ron, our power washer and carpenter, will rebuild walls in basement so we can run electrical. All seems to be moving ahead.
