...Often Work Out Just Fine

Yesterday, we got the revised plans from the engineering folks.  We'll have to do some strapping to the south wall of the building to help prevent the roof from being ripped off in a tornado or hurricane (!?) but it's pretty easy.  It involves knocking off some of the stucco (but not all of it, Phew!) and having the contractor do what he was supposed to have done in the first place--demolish the old south truss and install the new one.  We'll have to add some metal strapping that is similar to the earthquake strap around your water heater tank only thicker.

On Monday, we have an appointment with The City to get the revised plans approved.  (The "Back Check" appointment.)  The correct truss should be installed sometime next week.  Should.  ("Shouldn't it have been installed weeks ago??")

I'm not sure if I should be but I'm kind of happy that Demo Guy is getting annoyed at this job.  He should have done it right in the first place, don't ya think?  Maybe he'll learn.  ("Why hasn't he learned already??")
