Good morning to you too!

This morning, after we dropped the kids off to school, and settled to drink our coffee in peace, a loud noise came from upstairs. We weren't really sure what happened, so we went room to room. And this is what we found in our daughter's bedroom:

The plaster ceiling collapsed. Apparently, the bathroom drain upstairs has completely rotted out, and it was leaking, soaking the insulation and the plaster for weeks now. Today, it had enough, and it simply went down. This will be a fun holiday season with the family staying over, minus one bedroom and one bathroom. Oh, joy...

We found the "missing" house

Thanks to one of our readers, Robert, who identified the house on South Mountain Avenue.

I almost crashed into a tree while looking at it and can't believe I never noticed it before. It was right there. I mean, it looks exactly the same as in this photo. Right?

The funny thing is that I drive by the house almost daily. Which goes to show you just how many things go unnoticed in our lives...

Award from Montclair Historic Preservation Commission

Our lovely porch restoration has won an award from the Montclair Historic Preservation Commission for Brick and Mortar Preservation project in the residential category.

We are very honored. Here is the story in Baristanet.

And here is the photo of the porch.

The awards ceremony is on Thursday, November 19. We hope to see you all there.

Kids Bath: Electrical - DONE

Electrical - DONE, TOO! Yay!

However, he opened a hole in the wall in the wrong place above the mirror, so now that needs to be patched up tomorrow. That means an extra day tacked on. We really wanted it to be finished tomorrow. We are already 4 days over schedule. Ugh.

I. Need. This. Job. To. End.
