Re: Layabout husband- 3 years in a tore-apart home.
I agree with the other posters, it's time to put your threats into action. It's time to serve him with divorce papers.
You could encourage him to take another trip to the Ice fishing house, and have the contractor come in and do the work while husband is at the ice fishing house, and pack the rest of his sh!t while you're at it. When he gets back, hand him the divorce papers, and say, "I warned you of what would happen. I hired a contractor and a lawyer. Here's your stuff. Why don't you go back to the ice fishing house?"
Or something like that.
