Guess what he found up there?? An entire porch roof, complete with slate - REAL slate. The builder just built the addition over it when he added the apartment back in the '30s or '40s. So, today, we decided that before he closes up the crawl space, he will retrieve as many of those slates as he can. (GRAMMAR UPDATE: That sentence had THREE tenses in it, past, present and future!) My Dad can use the slate on his barn roof.
Update: The husband went up and decided it's not worth all the effort to bring the slate down. Oh, well. We'll have an access panel now if we ever decide we want them.

The worst part of all of this will be cleaning up after the job is done. Our handyman/electrician gets stuff swept up and put back the best way he can, but it is never good enough for ME! And the tenant is way pickier about that kind of stuff than I am. Anyone want to help? I can pay you in slates! (That way, we'll HAVE to bring some down!)
