Post Jenga

It was a delicate operation that I wrote about in my last post, Jenga on 3, but we've done it. We built temporary support walls on 2 that kept the world from crashing down and we reclaimed the third floor "No Mans Land". The support walls threw angles, light and abstract beauty around the second floor. 

Putting up support walls:

We reclaimed wood from other areas to build the support.

The heater is still up there...you can see it peeking out the top.

Support walls in place, Malcolm cuts out the deadweight heater:

Next: peeling back the crumbly floor so we can get ready to repair it all:

With the old floor out, we can get to the charcoal joists that need replacement.
