For a while this week things kept getting worse...
First they found that the drywall/plaster/etc had issues and ALL had to be removed.
Then they found 2! more leaks -- so the roof has to be replaced.
Then they found that ALL of the electrical was not up to code.
So, in the end, we were left with a room that was stripped down to the studs...

Yesterday was the first day we finally saw forward progress instead of further demolition. The new wiring went in yesterday and today they are doing framing and drywall. HUZZAH! Forward progress feels good.
