The Door in.  

Here's a look:

The only thing I don't like about this picture is the guy seems to be holding up a piece of wood and scratching his head.  I certainly hope the roof doesn't cave in once the job's done.  If so, I will submit this photo into evidence.  Exhibit A.

Once the workers left for the day things like this started to happen:

and this...

I wish I could say it stopped here...

...but, it just got sillier and sillier...

If you have young children then you have probably seen the movie, 'Ramona and Beezus'.  

Thanks, Ramona, for the inspiration.

Something's different...

Construction is underway on the foyer area.  We cleared everything out and it looked like this:

We cleared some landscaping in the front and it looked like this:

The original front door is to the right of the glass.  There is a little porch area there.  

And then I went to bed.  
I woke up, ate my breakfast, went outside and the front of my house looked like this:

and the inside looked like this:

They hung a blue tarp up so the whole living room had a blue hue.  It was fun just seeing the shadows of the workers going up and down their ladders.  Like a peep-show... or not... anyway....
They were very careful removing all the glass, and I think it was a much easier job than they had anticipated.  They only shattered one piece and I am still finding little shards on the ground in front of the house.  However, I know that there will be a deck/porch going up over it soon enough so I am not too worried about picking up every single piece (that would be impossible).  I just make sure that the kiddie winkles and their friends always keep their shoes on when they are playing out front.
