Renovations 2006: Front sill and studs

Inside | Cellar | Front | Back | Kitchen | Walk | Electric | Sill | Rock | Paint | Trees

The sill is exposed and shows itself to be of questionable integrity.

Kurt points out one of the more appalling examples of rotted wood.

Using a beam salvaged from the old barn Bob fashions it as a replacement.

The new sill in place.

The end of one floor board in the living room needed to be pulled up and replaced. A victim of the same termite attack.

A 2006 penny nailed to the new sill. Something for future renovators to discover.

We had a signing party to go along with the penny. Bob's daughter Amelia joins Kurt in a game of tic-tac-toe. One more thing for some future renovator to discover.
