And this is early in the day. Since these pictures were taken, insulation is now filling the exterior wall and ceiling and I’ve crawled through the rafters into the attic… twice. Why? I think the question should be, “why not?”

In addition to all that (and the installation of our shower door, see below), a lot of door casing went in, drywall went up in the laundry room, and the water heater was moved. It was a dicey move, since it jiggled the ancient wire box that serves as our telephone hub, but your humble narrator was able to re-attach everything and place a few well-timed calls.


Oh, and the pile of trash was Dumpstered™. And through it all, Indiana perservered:
