Karen here, I just wanted to give a quick update as to where we stand on the repairs from the car that crashed into our house waaaaaay back on Superbowl Sunday. After we finally got everything approved with the insurance company and picked out a (fantastic) contractor, it didn’t take long for the repairs to get underway fast. The got the demolition and framing done in just a few days and Kenny and I were grinning from ear to ear thinking our whole house would be back to normal in just a week or so.
Well, if there’s one thing I’ve learned from this whole ordeal its to expect the unexpected. We have had several hiccups along the way, everything from discovering two more entire walls of brick that were disturbed so strongly from the impact of the crash that if you just shove on them they sway back and forth and back and forth and they will have to be removed and replaced then more recently having an impossible time finding a brick that will match the existing brick on our home.
Needless to say this has dragged everything to a halt while we wait for insurance to approve the more extensive repairs to the brick wall and while I go on a personal vendetta trying to find ANY brick that even comes close to matching our home.
In the mean time our contractor has been kind enough to work around the holdups and he has his drywall guys working hard getting the interior patched up and running electrical outlets and all those kinds of things. I just wanted to post a couple of pictures to share with family and friends that we are on the road to recovery.
So if you find yourself driving through our town one of these days and see a beautiful house that just happens to have two entirely different shades of brick going on, you’ll know it’s us. 😉
