  PG&E comes by our cottage to chat about the new location for the gas meter. Six of us meet, make the obvious decision, talk about old stoves. All win.

  20090315 Happy 8th Birthday, Breanna: On Sunday 15 March 2009 Lila and I were invited to Breanna's 8th birthday party. The water-pistol fights were fierce; the spoken Chinese, plentiful; hanging out at the never-ending BBQ, great; and the celebration and cake; joyful.

  20090313 Renovation Report #2 - Shovel Hits Dirt: A few days after "Plans of Attack" the crew have removed the concrete from the slanted "porch" in front of our cottage, from the walkway to the rear, and from the back border and slanted inset by the stairs. They're digging an access way to the basement, from which they'll extract dirt. It's so exciting!

A rear-view of our house, with Isaac climbing the huge pile of rubble from the demolishing of the basement, rear stairs, and concrete that surrounds the front, side, and rear of the house.

Our house: rear demolished

Underneath, where the basement is to go, Isaac climbed down into the 10-foot (3-meter) hole dug for the cribbing (on which the house will rest as a foundation is created. One can really get a sense of scale.
