I stopped by the project this morning to find the guys exposing the badly the damaged front wall. Under the vinyl siding was a scary sight!
Since we had already torn out the plaster inside, you can now see right through the wall.
Since the previous owner died without a will and an investor bought the house from the estate (I have deduced), we have no history of repairs. The vinyl siding was probably installed to cover the holes and prevent more infiltration of the elements.
On the bright side:
The windows should be in Monday!
