I wish I was kidding ya’ll, but I’m not. We found MORE termite damage this week. This time, we found the lovely little bug trails in the kitchen area. Here we are before I get started on removing the exterior wall…
I pulled down a few pieces of tongue and grove planks in the kitchen and WAM – termite damage!
Pretty nasty. Thankfully, I just called our trusty Cook’s Pest Control contractor, and he came out and took care of removing the damaged areas and reframing on Tuesday. Have I said I love Cook’s today? No? Ok. Well, I love Cook’s. I LOVE COOK’S!
So far (actually, before we found more damage this week), the total for repairs, labor and materials, including materials to finish the room, was right around $14,700. Can you say YIKES?!?!?! Thank the Lord for Cook’s is all I can really say. The would have taken a nice chunk out of our renovation budget.
We actually had two of our neighbors pop in this week. Both haven’t seen it since we first purchased it. Let’s look take a look back…
And now it looks more like this….
Thanks for reading!! Any one placing bets on more termite damage? Any hoping this doesn’t turn into a terrible four-part series? Is there a correct name for a four-part series? I don’t even know. Anyways, thanks for stopping by!
I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July as well!
