Vintage Life: Uh-oh, Termites!

 

Although we thought we were finished with the demolition phase of our 1920s bungalow renovation, we realized we weren’t quite done.  The original wood lap siding was in terrible condition, so we decided that had to go too.

We had quite a few people slamming on their brakes while driving past our little bungalow.  It’s not often you can see straight through a house.

Of course, we’ve also learned to expect the unexpected.  (Wait – wasn’t the replacing of the siding unexpected in the first place?  Yep, is the answer to that.)  So we weren’t surprised to find that the front sill had significant termite damage.

Yikes – those termites had been munching out for quite awhile!  Unfortunately we forgot to take the after photos – I think we were too tired from jacking up the supports, cutting out the bad parts, and replacing it with a nice, new sill.
