Good news, and some of the other kind

Weather has been nice, workmen have made fast progress with demo (3 huge dumpsters worth), we're doing okay cooking and eating out of the "dining and everything room", and selection of fixtures is going pretty well.
On the other hand, Cameron our general contractor has hurt his back and can barely get out of bed, and we've found carpenter ants in rotting wood in several spots around the back of the house. The plumber thinks the upstairs bathtub drain will rust through soon, so that will have to be replaced so it doesn't leak into our new kitchen. The back wall of the house was untreated wood improperly set on the foundation, so it's being rebuilt today. And it's about to rain.
All this makes it one of those days you hear about on old house projects...
