Question: How long does it take to strip the siding off an apartment building?
Answer: Longer than 2 weeks (and they still aren’t done).
The incessant pounding noise the construction guys make is not terribly conducive to me being productive. I’m one of those writers the prefers quiet. I can write with music if need be, but I prefer the music not to be very loud. *sigh* Looking at the outside of the building, they appear to be almost done tearing off the old siding. I’m _hoping_ that when they’re finished tearing the siding off my building, they’ll move on to one of the other buildings (there are 6 buildings in the complex). They’d strip the siding off all six buildings before they start putting siding back onto my building, right? Right? So I can have some quiet writing time?
