    No, I think he's going to live there. I don't know him very well, but he has two kids, so the extra space will help. Plus if he owns the company doing it, it'll be on the cheap.

    The house on my other side is probably going to sell soon, and I suspect it will be gutted and replaced. That's another story. I've had no neighbor on the other side for like 10 years.

    Used to be common, but really not anymore out here on the west coast.
    You might pay $600k for your house, but the value is in the land, not the 30k of wood and stucco on it.
    Unless there's historical value in the home, it's not worth moving anymore.
    In some higher-end neighborhoods, nearly every buyer does a complete tear-down and rebuild.

    Yea I see plumbing is being attached, so this must be the final height.

    Jackhammers this morning! Grrr :mad: They stopped for now, but who knows. All the work going into raising it was very quiet, I didn't really know until it was like the first picture.

    For the record, downtown Seattle is directly through his roof. I don't care about not seeing it, it already blocked it at normal view level like this. The white objects on the distant right are the cranes for the port, in South Seattle.

    The cloud was a cloud that just happened to be there.

    Maybe a good method to finally stop that door.
