Extreme Makeover Wall Edition

How much wood..
could a termite eat…

if a termite could eat wood?

Uh, termites do eat wood. And the answer is: A WHOLE FREAKIN‘ LOT!

That look on Clay’s face says it all. What? How? When? What are we going to do? How are we going to fix it? When will this project end?

I’ve been waiting for a contractor to ‘stop by this week’ for about five months now. So we took the repair in our own hands, which is what we usually do. But, now we are at the point where Clay is telling me all the expensive new tools he’s going to have to purchase to do the job and I’m saying, “But, but, but….”.

From past experience I know that this phase of the renovation will last at least four months. So we have some time to look at that gaping hole in the wall and decide how the heckle-jojeckle we’re going to replace the ridge beam that was used for the termites last dinner party.
