Not going to lie, reclaiming a block is a pretty lofty task. Three weeks to prepare and to do work is not exactly the timeline I had dreamed of – but take what you can get.
When someone backs out after saying they’ll help out you find yourself elbow deep in garbage and debris from 2002. You don’t plan for things to go wrong, but I find that it’s helpful to be prepared when they do.
Two days left to do a lot of finageling and a lot of “scraping things together”, but nonetheless I’m looking to change some perceptions so hopefully it will all be worth it.
