As Good as New?
Seeing the innards of your 110 year old home is a bit unnerving. They tore off the siding on the front to run some new wiring to the porch. The inner beams and paneling are actually in pretty good shape.
But like the mid-point of a root canal, you wonder to yourself if it will ever be quite the same again. The Dentist reassures you you'll be as good as new, but until you chew your first New York bagel, you don't quite believe it.
The builders quickly put up the bead board, the next day the deck was installed, and thankfully the place looks a little less like an irretrievable mess.
