I haven't seen this much
white powder around since the late 1970's. The contractor's men have kicked it into
high gear. I'll bet by this time next week we'll have a kitchen. Today they knocked a hole in the brick wall for our exhaust hood that
goes over the stove. We got a very powerful exhaust. the contractor, Juan, said
it would suck all the oxygen out of the kitchen in sixty seconds. Good, exactly
what I wanted. The only problem with that was they had to punch a very large
hole in the wall above the stove. The fallout was extensive, plaster dust
Unfortunately, at this moment the house is a mess. We are choking on plaster dust.
It's on the furniture, it's stuck to the walls, It's even on the dogs. When I
take them outside, I have give them a good patting down just to knock off some of the
dust. When all this is over I intend to hire a cleaning service to come in and
do a thorough cleaning. I checked their web site. Unfortunately, they don't do dogs.
