Just like the song says, what a difference a day makes, 24 little hours.
When we last left the McDebt McMansion site Monday evening, this was our view - a nice slab of concrete with some iron work for porches.
What we were greeted with upon arrival Tuesday evening made me gasp with pleasure. The McDebt McMansion, like a phoenix, rises!
In one day - ONE DAY - the whole first floor sprang into the air, although I doubt if the crew that worked on it in the 100 degree heat felt it went up so easily!
Here Juan McDebtor enters the back door for the first time...
...to view his land through the newly-formed front windows...
...and back ones.
And as the sun sets outside of one of the great room's windows (dramatic, huh?), Juan and I marvel at the whirling thoughts and ideas chockablock (my word for the day) in our brains as we dare plan for the unknown future.
Through the combined good fortune of my sister from Denver finding this lovely property and the new neighbors becoming loving friends AND our building contractor, Juan McDebtor and I indeed feel blessed.
