Shortly after posting my previous entry about the loud contractors the next street over, I poked my head out the back door and heard...opera. Very loud opera.
I realized that our neighbor Joe, who regaled trick-or-treaters with the Harry Potter score, and played The Messiah from his balcony on Christmas Eve, was addressing the construction din in his own special way.
Unfortunately, a few minutes later the contractors cranked up a deafening rock radio station. When I drove by to run errands, I noticed that the remodel has reached the siding stage (cheap alumnum siding — ugh). Things should be getting quieter as they move to the interior phase of the project.
