Well, there's good and there's bad.
For the good, almost EVERYTHING is done!
The plumber came today and hooked up the water. He installed the shower heads:
And the toilet:
Best news of all, we have enough water pressure that we won't have to pay the extra $700 to increase the size of the line from the city's water to our house! :)
The carpenters came and sided as much as they could, without the other window in place:The drywallers patched up some stuff and finished trimming the closet door:And they FINALLY replaced the floorboards that we'd seen mold on:
Which brings me to the bad part. Here's the underside of one of the boards they replaced:
And then G. lifted up the new boards to make sure there wasn't any more damage and he found this:
Which is even more mold, growing on the drywall/ceiling of the floor below.
I am just sick! It is obvious that this is a problem, as the mold I'd seen a week and a half ago GREW between then and now--even without any vermiculite or moisture in there. I have a call in to the building inspector and I don't even know exactly where to go with this. We have asked and asked and asked the contractor to remedy it and he continues to assure us that it's not a problem, that buildings get water and some mold in them all the time and that as soon as it dries out, it won't be an issue.
I just want to cry.
