Putting it back down was just the beginning. Now we have to repair all the flood damage.
We were not allowed to do any repairs until the house was elevated (township regulations) and the potential for cracking drywall and bowing the new windows and doors made it a bonehead idea anyway.
First let me introduce you to the crew. This guy has been behind the scenes advising me all the way. Also did the drawings for the building permit - electrical, mechanical, plumbing everything but the foundation drawing.
He doesn't like limelight or attention; he prefers to let the work do the talking. That makes writing about him hard so we'll call him - Ren. For modern day renaissance man. Ren because I always liked the name from the (original) Footloose movie
and because Ren Man leads to obvious jokes.
He is truly a modern day renaissance man. Wood, metal, mechanics, paint, drafting and art. He did all the work to the Airstream - metal, mechancial (heat, power, plumbing), custom cabinets. Custom furniture for our living room, paint work for our bikes and scooters. I could go on but it would just piss him off.
I will say one more thing. His ability to see how the systems interact and what will happen when you put stuff together sets him apart.
