It’s come at last. The day you knew would come at last has come at last.
This morning, we started tearing the house down. We’re still waiting for electric service (bureaucracy reigns), but in the time being, there’s nothing quite as nice as a helpful neighbor, a teardown friend, and a long extension cord. Sawzalls ablaze! We’re starting with this back shed/storage room. It’ll give us a lot more outside space, and it’ll come down pretty easily.
Funny how things develop in your head – I was thinking, “Well, I might as well get the dumpster and do come pre-rip tossing. Doesn’t cost any more for it to sit there.” And then I thought we might as well run an extension cord and take the back room off. And then I thought we might as well start on the roof, long as we have the temp power. It became obvious that I needed to get a hold of my awesome friend who is going to be doing a lot of the work. I put the word out at the town store, and said friend was here within a few hours. (I love small towns!)
There’s nothing that can quite match the promise of an empty dumpster, is there?
