Back in November of 2013,
the people who bought the house next to mine,
decided to take it down and build something new and modern.
I was not sure how I felt about that, the house was only 30 years old,
but it had not been loved and cared for in a year,
so perhaps it was a good idea.
All of the windows and lumber were donated to Habitat for Humanity.
I did not get a picture before the demolition began,
but I have taken some pictures along the way.
I decided to share this today because
I have not been out all week and I don't have a "real" fence picture
to share today.
I noticed there are several ugly chain link fences (mine) and
some unsightly orange safety fences in these.

The house sat for a little bit over the winter.
Permits and inspections are still difficult to obtain because of
Super Storm Sandy

I took this picture early one morning as I was watching the sunrise.
So...that's what I have been looking at for the past 16 months.
I was happy when the carpenters finished,
they started at 7 a.m., sharp.
And the roofers also, you could set your clock to it and there
was no way to sleep through it.
Their expected move in date is sometime in May.
They are a very nice, young couple with 3 children
and a lot of money.
Right now they are taking out the old swimming pool
and replacing it with a new one.
My prediction, I don't think they will be in by May.
Yep, I'm pretty sure the are not going to make it...
and I am dying to get inside!!
