  •  heh. might actually have to hire this one out (7+ / 0-)

    I can do it, but it makes me tired just thinking about it.

    the 2nd floor has a "knee wall" @ about 3 ft.  Then the rest of the wall goes up from there.

    as you would expect in an old house the settling caused the "top" of the wall to pivot.

    some of the walls are out of plumb almost 1 1/2 in in 8 ft.

    I couldn't bring myself to put the windows in to match the slope of the wall - it just wouldn't be right.

    so I knew this day was coming :-)
