When Ian pulled the carpet up he started in the corner where we had a bit of a water issue and he found white ants (apparently they like a drink with their wood). To be safe he pulled up the whole floor so the pest inspector could check the subfloor structure. Turns out this is unnecessary, they just cut inspection holes through the floor for that, and there were no more ants to be found. Ian does not seem concerned, but I've wanted a hardwood floor for years, ever since high school and my friend Sasha's house, and there's the added expense of replacing the floor :( Anywhoo... moving on.
Ian is feeling very sore after a weekend on the roof (and he doesn't like heights!). And we're hoping for rain around here, for the farmers mostly but also to wash all the dust off our rafters. Here's to rebuilding!
