    Sounds like you did a stellar job building the gun vault. I will continue to keep you and now the pups in my prayers.

    It just burst all on its own. We were away for two days.

    DONT LET THE INSURANCE COMPANY CHEAP OUT! They are experts at dodging a few expenditures. They should pay for the guys to help with removal of your personal stuff. Complete restoration and fight for every nickel. I have very little love for them. Even in a huge disaster area they don’t loose money, just some profit.

    Most pet stores have "calming treats" for dogs. I'm not sure you want to go that route, but several years ago when we had the hardwood floors refinished, we spent the night hotel with our dogs while the floors dried. A calming treat for each dog had them mellowed out and relaxed.

    Popeye, very sorry to hear of this misfortune. I hope you and Leedi come out the other side as unscathed as possible.
    No doubt its a huge PITA. As I said before hope it's resolved quickly and as uneventful as possible.

    Water, fire and the government are the same, helpful if controled, harmful if not.

    Good idea to camp out in back yard with the dogs. Helps keep mischief makers away. Prayers for quick and painless as possible return to normalcy.

    I did this three years ago with my dad's house. Got Serve Pro to do the remediation. After paying USAA many, many thousands of dollars for many years, they coughed up $12K ..... I dropped them like a hot rock.

    I hope you get things lined out soon. Tent living for extended time is a young man's (and dog's) game.

    Getting it all torn up "right now" is easy. Finding people to put it back together again "right now" is the hard part.

    Good luck. Sorry you're having to do this.

    I believe the same folks doing the 'destruction' will be doing the restoration. Good people... so far.

    Yup. Tent living is a young man's game. My back says so,

    I got my attorney on this in three days. Its amazing how everyone became more amenable after that. Things seem to be going smoothly.

    That's good news, Popeye! Hopefully you'll be back in your home soon!

    FYI, make sure there is no 'release of liability' condition tied to restoration. Mold can creep back months later, if not done right.
