It’s been awhile since we have posted anything on the Horner House and associated projects. We are still here and still moving forward with all of our projects, but we have run into a few new bumps in the road. The first is my (Amanda's) health. While the Rheumatologist has given me a tentative diagnosis I have been passed on to literally an additional dozen specialists to make sure that nothing has been missed. Unfortunately, they have only found additional questions and no answers. To complicate things further, my health is only stable when I keep my activity to only a few miserly hours each day. My PCP is very pleased with the care that I have received from the IU system, but she thinks it’s time to try another approach and has set me up with the Mayo Clinic. I will be seeing them at the end of June. The doctor is very hopeful that we can finally get some answers or at the very least, get me back to “normal.”
In the picture the “beam” is the board that runs sideways and is held up by the post. You can see how it bows down from where it is help up by the post.
We have a plan for fixing this problem but we need the calculations on board sizes and such so that we can get started. Once we have that information we will do another blog with more detail and better pictures. We will also do the stabilization necessary so that we can get back to the other things I want done before I will move; like putting in a floor and cabinets in the kitchen and a toilet in the upstairs bathroom. :)
