Moving date is around the corner. Across the street that is. Some of the features in the new house that I am excited about are quadruple the amount of electrical outlets compared to the old house, a 66' HDMI in-wall cable from the main TV to my office computer, a generous amount of space for my office where I spend much of my time, and much, much more.
A couple of years of dealing with lighting strike damages to electrical followed by a water pipe break that took out my entire office led us to make some hard decisions. In order to prepare for the building plans, we had to tear down grandma Sal's over 100-year old home with a lot of history that was not affordable to repair. Repairs would have been extensive and starting over was the only answer.
Here is the start and a reflection of that sad, yet happy day in a short time-lapse video.
This video was the beginning of building the new house.
Up goes the second story.
