When we moved here last year, we had all kinds of plans for fixing the barn, house, yard, fields, etc. Well,we were off to a good start and then time and money seemed to run out. We had wanted to take off our kitchen and a bedroom last summer, but we couldn't afford it. My honey has been trying to work full time for almost five months. God is good and we're not too far behind on our bills, but....he still has more time than money and decided now is the time to get rid of this kitchen and bedroom. My parents offered to help out with the money part, and we got a Lowe's card (shame, shame). So as of yesterday, it was official and we started packing. We need to reroute the electric, cut off water lines, move appliances and pack up the kithchen and bedroom.----by tomorrow morning. I think we can do it. My honey is one motivated guy. The excavator comes tomorrow to tear down the house and dig the basement. Dh wants to have the walls for the basement put up tomorrow and the cement poured on Saturday for the floor. Then put up the first floor and the second will have to wait a bit. We'll have no windows or flooring or cupboards for awhile, but we will have a much warmer house. So are we crazy? October in northern Minnesota is not a great time to start building.
I'll take before and after and even after that pics. So next time I write, we should have a new addition to our house well on the way. Lord willing.
