Why my room is draftier than usual

It’s been peaceful for the past few days because of the bad weather… the painters were supposed to finish today (three weeks late) but obviously that wasn’t going to happen. My landlady visited with the head builder (unannounced) and I could hear them arguing outside the house about what was going to stay and what needed replacing:

“We have to remove that.”

“You’ll take it away and fix it and bring it back?”

“No, we have to remove it.”

“But it’s a fixture!”


“Oh. Fair enough.”

After they left, I came out to see what the craaack noise had been. The head builder had made his point by ripping off a big chunk of the rotting corner of the house with his bare hands.
