    Some body said we need posts

    This place really does.
    Todays project went from changing a few bad pieces of trim to something a bit more time consuming.

    Can you do your best Mike Holmes impression and tell us where they went wrong?

    Looks like you've got some work ahead of you.

    Chuck couldn't you have wished for something a little less huge for your birthday? I have only seem rot like that here on the wet coast. The worst we had to deal with was one houes that had rot through the main support beam with a 24 inch crawl space and no room to bring the material into, we had to open up part of the floor and assemble the new beam in place, it wasn't pretty at all. I do not envy the job ahead of you.

    Yes and I think the shutters might be put on the back burner.
