It's been a long time coming . . . — 18 Comments

  1. You’re (finally) going to add an above-ground basement, aka elevate the house a full story?

    (I live in St. Tammany parish. My house is about five feet above the highest part of the lot. There was enough water from the Bayou Liberty at the end of the road to float the wheels stored under the house out.)

  2. Glad you are finally getting your head above water! Or should I say feet and floor? How long do you think it will take to finish?

  3. Finally!

    Photos are awsome!

    So is your story!

    Blufloyd asked me a question about God but I don’t know how to respond to his comment.

    so if your readers want to offer Lillian some tech advice…let’ hear it

  4. Nice. Round ones out of style? Look short to me.

    No sweating my religious questions. I did the wheel and the circles just being happy here now till I enter the void laughing.

    • Dear Blu,
      This is my official request of you regarding new house project: NO NEGATIVE COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS ALLOWED. PERIOD.

      Never ask Lillian a religious question unless you want a sermonette. Please don’t mess with her. Coming from Quaker roots, she takes her faith very seriously!!!

  5. This is so WONDERFUL! YAY! YAY! YAY! Doing a happy dance for you myself which is serving a dual purpose of warming me up. Dude–it’s minus 3!!! Your photos and the pics I took of the crossbeams under Miss W’s place the other day have certainly made my holiday season! Who said there’s no Santa Claus?

  6. You answer my questions just like my boss. She has same weird slant on negative vs positive too. I have no negative/positive meter I just ask questions as they occur…..You get to work out details of answer. I always get one sometimes it is from other sources or just the time line of things.

    Happy Hannukah…

  7. Hope those are for elevating your house and not for putting in a railroad behind it! They sorta look like railroad ties.

  8. What a great early Christmas present!! I know your family is very excited. I hope the transition is extremely smooth. And for some odd reason I’m humming the theme song to “The Jefferson’s” in my head as I type … movin’ on up, movin’ on up … 🙂

  9. I KNEW this was the surprise you alluded to! I may just have to wait a while before using my Camp Dularge reservation so I can see the progress.
