Good morning.

I got a good walk in yesterday in 60 degrees and sunshine. It's still sunny today but it's not going to crack 40. I need the air and the exercise.

I wasn't looking forward to messing with shims; I'd have to take the trim off both sides.

I doubt there were modifications. It's essentially a kit home built by waves of subcontractors. I've documented many instances of cost and corner cutting here before.

Mark, did your brother leave his pipes drip overnight? That would've helped.
