My job was to support the floor joists, (45') so the masons could finish demo, and replace the framing with block/pour...This is where I have to build my support wall!

I knew what I was up against today, so I was able to keep a positive attitude, but c'mon...this is the messiest house I have ever been in....The house is awesome but in horrible disrepair, and a Fing mess! Even the living areas are terrible....they need a crew for 2 weeks and a dozen 40 yard dumpsters to even get to a point where any real rehabbing could be done.

This mansion is on a cliff overlooking Lake Erie, with a beautiful view....It was built perfectly...what a shame!

These pics don't prove it....

1. this area was called a NYS disaster area when Cattaraugus Creek flooded a couple months ago....I was told there was flood debris that filled the whole bay.

2. there has been no property maintenance EVER....The landscaping is so-so....

3. the hazy, rainy morning light didn't help.

I'll be back a couple more times...so I'll try to get some better pics.

I had second thoughts!:whistling It's wrong...
Don't be so hard on yourself.

That's what you have all of us for.:clap:

Bring it back if you even have a twinge of guilt. Then ask if you can have it.

I hope you stayed low around that junction pretzel !!! I watched in horror and hysterical laughter as a friend of mine scratched his head under one like it and his big ugly 'Reaper' ring arced and he did the Helter Skelter:eek: underneath it. It even arced onto his wire rimmed glasses:thumbup:
